LWVLC led ballot measure discussions:
The League provides members who are informed about state and local ballot measures to present to groups in Lane County.
Trained members share well-researched information that neither supports nor opposes any political party, candidate or ballot measure. When requesting a speaker provide desired date and time, location, size of group and topic(s) of interest. Our ability to fill requests depends on speaker availability.
Topics include: Ballot Measures, Civics, Government

The new law took effect on January 1, 2016. It is meant to increase voter engagement by allowing voters an easy way to register. After going to the DMV, you will receive a card in the mail that will give you three options.
- Do nothing – you will registered as a nonaffiliated voter (not a member of a political party). You would not be allowed to vote in the primaries.
- Pick a party – Choose a party of your choice and return the card.
- Opt out – Use the card to decline to participate in the voting responsibility.
