The Portland chapter of the Alliance for Democracy and the Democracy Action Group of Portlandâ€™s First Unitarian Church will host a Forum on Election Integrity from 10 am â€“ 12 noon on May 3rd at the First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland, featuring those candidates for Secretary of State whose names will appear on Oregon's May 20th primary ballot.
Six election integrity groups (including Fair Elections Oregon) will be putting questions to the candidates directly. The candidates will be provided the questions in advance, so they can be expected to have considered responses. The questioners will be experts in their fields, who know what the candidates have (and have not) done to advance or impede their causes.
Then will come questions from the audience.
Come and find out what they really think about campaign finance reform, ballot counting integrity, instant runoff voting, fusion voting, public funding of candidates, and more. The sponsoring groups are FairElections Oregon, FairVote Oregon, Oregon Voter Rights Coalition, Coalition for Initiative Rights, Democracy Reform Oregon, and Alliance for Democracy. More information is at AFD Oregon.
