STATE BALLOT MEASURES

Katie Lu, Voter Service Chair
The General Election will be here before we know it.  On the ballot will be seven state measures for us to consider.

  • Should a fund be established for student aid and training in post-secondary education?
  • Should judges be paid for teaching at public universities that are state run or for serving in the National Guard?
  • Should people who live in Oregon, although illegally, be allowed to have a driver card?
  • Should an amendment be added to the Oregon Constitution saying that equality of rights cannot be denied or abridged by the state or any political subdivision on account of sex?
  • Should a primary election be open to all voters?
  • Should marijuana be legalized for sale to those 21 years of age in 2016?
  • Should raw or packaged food be labeled as genetically engineered if totally or partially produced that way?
The Unit meetings will cover these measures and offer opportunities for some lively discussions.

In lieu of the Wednesday and Friday units, there will be presentations to all the residents of Mary's Woods and Willamette View facilities: Willamette View, Monday October 13, 6:30 pm in the Auditorium and Mary’s Woods, Wednesday October 22, 7:00 pm in the Auditorium.
