Election Methods Study Update

At Convention 2021, LWV of Portland proposed a restudy of LWVOR's 2016 Election Methods Study. It would examine the STAR voting system and would last one year or less. The goal would be to inform League members about the benefits and limitations of the STAR voting option that is being promoted by a group of advocates. It would also be to determine whether or not the League could support or should oppose adoption of STAR voting in Oregon.

The committee has begun meeting regularly.

Contact Peggy Bengry for more information.
