Find all voting info here soon since Candidate filing is closed for the or the May 15, 2018 Oregon Primary. ALL Oregon candidates and ballot measures, timelines, voter registration info, ballot dropbox maps, etc. fWe will invite candidates to list with our VOTEResources this week. Some ORESTAR filings are still pending.
Search for ORESTAR filed candidates: enter 2018 in pull-down menu, scroll to SUBMIT, then EXPORT to excel. Local candidates must still be searched by individual city and county.
There are 177 filed for these races and we hope to have debates and forums locally, discussing now.
Oregon judicial races are BIG in 2018. Compared to the 2 contested DA races, there are 16 contested Oregon judicial races! We already have 116 filed, with 62 running unopposed. Choosing judicial candidates is important and difficult for our voters. We have better questions that judicial candidates can and should answer. This Oregon Judicial Dept MAP shows court districts by number, easy!
There are 17 Oregon County DA candidates filed, with contested races in Union and Washington Counties, so most are running unopposed. We want voters to be better informed, a struggle for these often low-profile candidates, so we have reviewed our DA candidate questions, to be invited shortly.
The ACLU is separately publicizing DA races, fyi.
