In response to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s unfounded attacks on vote by mail, Democratic Party of Oregon Chair Carla “KC” Hanson released the following statement:

“In Oregon, we’ve been voting by mail successfully for more than two decades — it’s increased accessibility, it’s given more Oregonians the ability to participate in our democracy, and it’s a safe, commonsense way to conduct an election, especially under these circumstances. The strength and success of our vote-by-mail system shows exactly why the Republican attacks on mail voting are so dishonest and such a transparent attempt to stop more Americans from exercising their constitutional right. The GOP is leveling these dishonest claims for one reason: Trump’s record has hurt hardworking Americans, and they know when more people vote, Democrats win.”
