In 1998, Oregonians overwhelmingly passed Ballot Measure 60, making us the pioneers in voting by mail.
President Donald Trump recently voiced his strong opposition to voting by mail, saying, “I think a lot of people cheat with mail in voting” — that’s a debunked lie — and “Republicans would never win again” — the truth.
Once again Trump is pushing a myth in order to suppress voter participation.
Trump would force voters to decide if going to a crowded, contaminated polling booth in the middle of winter is worth the risk of casting a ballot.
Our democracy is under attack.
Defend our right to safely vote by mail.
