Ballot Measure Discussions: (Due to COVID-19, the League is reviewing our options in presenting the ballot measures for 2020)
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
Yes, We Vote – November 3, 2020
Last year, millions of Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. But here’s the thing: you can’t cast a ballot on any of these measures unless you’re registered to vote. The voter registration deadline for the next primary election is October 13, 2020. Help us get the word out!
Voter registration is just the first step. LWVLC is experimenting with Please Vote signs to encourage people to take the next step: voting. Thanks to Alice Davenport for the suggestion and to Gary Harmon for organizing.
2020 is a big election year. We rely on volunteer power to educate community members about ballot measures and to coordinate candidate forums. As always, we welcome your support. Voter Service meets the 2nd Friday of each month. Call our office for additional information 541-343-7917 or email email@example.com
You might be seeing people with clip-boards asking for your signature to help put a measure on the ballot. The League of Women Voters of Oregon has put together a handy brochure: Think Before You Ink. You can find it here: BROCHURE
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.
