Oregon: Major parties not paying attention!

Letters to the Portland Tribune on the participation by independent voters in candidate selection:

Don’t count out indies ...If the major parties think that this law will do anything except cause even more voters to change their registration to independent, they have not been paying attention. George Waldmann Northeast Portland [more]

New primary rules may not bring voters ...Your assertion is wrong. Independents can help decide who should be on the November ballot, by signing petitions for independent candidates and also for new parties. State Sen. Ben Westlund is circulating a petition as an independent candidate, and so is the Working Families Party. Independents can sign these. Richard Winger Coalition for Free and Open Elections Editor, Ballot Access News San Francisco [more]
