List of Oregon ballot measures

list of oregon ballot measures results, list of oregon ballot measures for 2018
The list of Oregon ballot measures lists all statewide ballot measures to the present

In Oregon, the initiative and referendum process dates back to 1902, when the efforts of the Direct Legislation League prompted amending the Oregon Constitution for the first time since 1859 The process of initiative and referendum became nationally known as the Oregon System12

There are three types of ballot measures: initiatives, referendums, and referrals Initiatives and referendums may be placed on the ballot if their supporters gather enough signatures from Oregon voters; the number of signatures is a percentage based on the number of voters casting ballots in the most recent election for the Governor of Oregon

initiative Any issue may be placed before the voters, either amending the Constitution or revising or adding to the Oregon Revised Statutes Constitutional initiatives require the signature of eight percent of recent voters to qualify for the ballot; statutory reforms require six percent referendum The public may act to undo any bill passed by the Oregon Legislative Assembly, by putting a referendum on the ballot A referendum requires four percent of recent voters to qualify for the ballot referral The Legislative Assembly may refer any bill it passes to the public for approval, and must do so for any amendment to the Constitution Additionally, the Legislative Assembly may refer revisions to the Constitution; a revision differs from an amendment in that it may alter multiple provisions of the Constitution

The constitutional foundation for ballot measures and legislation produced by the Oregon Legislative Assembly may be found in Article IV of the Oregon Constitution,3 and Chapter 250 of the Oregon Revised Statutes4 relates to initiative and referendum as well

The Oregon Blue Book, produced by the Oregon government, maintains a list similar to this one5

In the fall election, Measure 36 outlawing gay marriage dominated public attention: 81,667 or 47% more votes were cast on Measure 36 than the average of all other measures on the ballot Measure 37 restricting land use regulation was contentious before the election, and became more controversial after the fact, as state and local governments attempted to implement it

Two other measures passed in 2004, both referred by the Legislature for the General Election, and neither one drawing any opposition in the Voters' Pamphlet Measure 31 made it possible to postpone certain elections in the event of a candidate's death, and Measure 32 changed the way revenue from mobile home taxes is handled78

In 2006, voters considered 11 statewide ballot measures All were placed on the ballot by initiative

Nearly all the measures were defeated Measures extending prescription drug pricing benefits Measure 44 and restricting the government's power of eminent domain 39 were the only ones that passed without qualification; a campaign finance reform system 47 passed as well, but a companion measure 46 that would have provided necessary constitutional support for it failed82

Out-of-state interests spent millions of dollars supporting—and in one significant case, opposing—Oregon ballot measures None of these big-money measures passed; in fact, Measures 39 and 44 passed without drawing any organized opposition83

Unsuccessful measuresedit

Measures 41 and 48 aimed to restrict the amount of money the State government could raise and spend, respectively They were both mostly funded by the Taxpayers Association of Oregon, which in turn received nearly all its funding from Illinois-based Americans for Limited Government Opposition to these two measures was paired as well, spending $19 million to defeat the two measures83

Measure 42 was promoted by conservative ballot measure activist Bill Sizemore Sizemore broke with his custom by promoting a consumer-oriented bill, which would have outlawed the use of credit data in determining insurance premiums Opponents of the measure spent over $37 million nearly all of which came from out of state, defeating the measure Their advertising focused heavily on Sizemore's credibility Sizemore did not run an active campaign promoting the measure He and his longtime political ally Loren Parks were the only people to submit arguments in favor for the Voters' Guide84

Measure 45, almost entirely financed by $12 million from Illinois-based US Term Limits, would have established strict term limits in the Oregon Legislative Assembly Term limits had previously been in place in the late 1990s, but the prior law was declared unconstitutional by the Oregon Supreme Court The measure failed

Measures 46 and 47 were presented as a single package; 46 would have amended the Constitution to allow limitations on campaign financing heavily favoring popular vote, and requiring a 75% vote for such changes in the Legislature; and 47 detailed specific limitations Measure 47 passed, but in the absence of the kind of Constitutional support Measure 46 would have provided, it will have no effect The campaigns both for and against this package were funded almost entirely from Oregon sources

Measure 40 sought to require that judges of the Oregon Supreme Court be elected by district, rather than statewide

Measure 43 sought to require parental notification in the event of certain teenage abortions Two measures restricting abortion were also rejected in the 1990 general election

Successful measuresedit

Measure 39, described by its proponents as a natural extension of 2004's Measure 37, restricted the governments powers of eminent domain Measure 44 extended a state prescription drug benefit, previously only available to seniors, to cover all uninsured Oregonians
