Oregon's Online Voters' Guide
Oregon citizens can go to a new Online Voters' Guide to bone up on their
election choices without having to wait until printed versions arrive in
Printed editions of the voter pamphlet, separated into sections for
ballot measures and candidate information, began arriving in homes the week
of Oct. 9. The Web-based version for measures was available Sept. 25. The
head start may come in handy because the document for ballot measures alone
is 376 pages.
"It's the largest pamphlet in Oregon history," said Jen Stineff, an
assistant to Secretary of State Bill Bradbury. "This is the most measures
we've had on the ballot since 1914."
There are 26 statewide measures and 607 arguments filed in support of
or in opposition to these measures, according to the Online Voters' Guide.
The Online Voters' Guide received 6,277 hits as of Oct. 19, not including
several days when Web-tracking operations were out of service, Stineff said.
