Ballot Measure 86 (Education Investment Bonding)
Ballot Measure 87 (Allow state judges to work at colleges and in National Guard)
Amends the state constitution to allow state judges to serve in the National Guard and teach at state universities.
This simple, uncontroversial bill should attract broad support from Oregonians of all stripes. Oregon’s state judges should have the same opportunities to serve in uniform and in the classroom as any other citizen. Vote Yes on 87.
Ballot Measure 88 (Driver cards for all Oregon residents)
Allows the DMV to issue “driver cards” to Oregon residents who pass written and driver tests, and can provide proof of Oregon residence for more than one year.
Measure 88 will make our roads safer for everyone. Oregon Democrats join business leaders, community leaders, and working Oregonians in supporting this common-sense measure. Vote Yes on 88.
Ballot Measure 89 (Equal Rights Amendment)
Amends the state constitution to ban discrimination based on sex.
We can’t take women’s equality for granted—it needs to be law. We can make that happen this year by giving women full equality in the Oregon Constitution. Vote Yes on 89.
