2020 Initiatives

Initiatives filed for the 2020 General Election.

A petition may be filed for any election, but only one petition cycle will be approved for circulation during a 2 year period. Petitions for future elections may go through the sponsorship phase, get a ballot title and go through ballot title appeal process. Approval to circulate for the 2020 cycle will be given after July 6, 2018, the deadline to submit signatures for the 2018 General Election.

INITIATIVES ARE DUE JUNE 1, 2020, according to ORS 250.105 (4). “…not less than 165 days before the election at which the proposed measure is to be voted upon…”
