The Easy Voting Guide is published by Disability Rights Oregon (DRO). The Easy Voting Guide is designed to be accessible to people with disabilities. DRO does not endorse any candidates.
DRO invited candidates to submit their statements and priorities in September. DRO gave candidates guidelines for writing in plain English. DRO asked candidates to limit their statements to 250 characters. DRO did not edit or change their statements. DRO cut off statements that were more than 250 characters. DRO used photos and lists candidates in the random order of letters of the alphabet as provided by the Secretary of State. DRO summarized costs and arguments for and against ballot measures. DRO based arguments on arguments provided in the Voters’ Pamphlet. DRO used guidelines for plain English and journalistic style guides to write summaries.
The Oregon Easy Voting Guide would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, federal funders, and partners at State and County voting offices. Thank you for your support!
Other sponsors include the Partnership in Community Living and the Oregon Resource Association. The US Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living (ACL) supports this project through generous grant support. The contents do not necessarily represent the official views of ACL or any other funder.
