OR Law Gives Boost To Minor Parties

Headline Legal News Posted on

According to the Associated Press, a bill aimed at giving more clout to minor political parties in Oregon elections was signed into law Thursday by Gov. Ted Kulongoski.

The new law allows candidates on a general-election ballot to list the nomination of more than one political party on the ballot.

The law will allow the names of up to three political parties that have nominated a candidate to appear alongside the candidate's name on the ballot.

Major-party candidates could choose whether they want to also list the nomination of a minor party on their ballot line.

The new legislation repeals a 2005 law that said voters couldn't sign a petition or attend a political convention for a candidate if they had previously participated in another party's nominating process.
