3 things I will do if I win:
Icon: A picture of the American flag with 13 stripes and 50 stars.1. I will ensure every Oregonian has their voice heard in our democracy.


Icon: A pencil, an apple, and a chalkboard with "ABC" written on it, and the label "K - 12."2. Create the Oregon Youth Vote, a program to allow high school students to complete special ballots in every election, to teach young people the process and importance of voting. These ballots won’t count towards the official results.
