The Multnomah County Democratic Party has officially taken the following positions on particular measures that will be on the General Election Statewide Ballot on November 4, 2014:
We SUPPORT Measure 86 -- the Oregon Opportunity Initiative, which will provide a dedicated revenue stream for financial aid to Oregon higher education students.
We SUPPORT Measure 88 -- Drivers' Cards, which upholds Senate Bill 833, a safe roads bill that provides a drivers certification process for all Oregon residents.
We SUPPORT Measure 89 -- Equal Rights Amendment, which amends the State Constitution to ban discrimination based on gender.
We OPPOSE Measure 90 -- the Top Two Primary, which would change Oregon's elections system so that only the top two vote-getting candidates in the Primary Election would appear on General Election ballots, and eliminate the opportunity for voters to write in candidates on the General Election ballot. This would eliminate minor parties from General Election ballots and eventually remove legal status from most small parties.
We SUPPORT Measure 91 -- Legalization of Marijuana, also known as the Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act of 2014.
We SUPPORT Measure 92 -- GMO Labeling, which requires suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers to label foods with genetically modified organisms with a GMO designation.
We SUPPORT Portland city measure 26-159 -- Bonds to fix playgrounds, trails; improve park facilities, safety, accessibility, also known as the Parks Bond.
