OREGONIANS FOR FAIR AND EQUAL REPRESENTATION
submitted two bills to the 1999 session of the Oregon Legislature.
1. House Bill 3162 text
INSTANT RUNOFF or PREFERENCE VOTING is an electoral change that simultaneously increases the opportunities for minor party candidates and guarantees that winners receive a majority of the vote. By allowing people first choice, second choice, etc, it eliminates the spoiler role of minor parties.
2. House Bill 3163 text
OREGON COMMISSION ON VOTING AND CITIZEN PARTICIPATION will study other electoral changes, including Proportional Representation, that are designed to increase turnout and bring greater choice in politics.
