Letter: Voters’ pamphlet for Jan. 23 election is flawed

Published on January 4, 2018 8:58AM


On the front of the voters’ pamphlet for Oregon’s Jan. 23 special election, Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson has signed a Certificate of Correctness that includes the claim, “that this guide has been correctly prepared in accordance with the law in order to assist electors in voting.”

I seriously doubt he has read the voter’s pamphlet. If he had, he would have noticed that two of the submissions as Arguments in Favor are actually Arguments in Opposition. The one on pages 29 to 30, information for which was submitted by Lindsay Berschauer, is heavily sarcastic and concludes, “Vote no on 101!”

The other, on pages 31 to 32, information for which was submitted by Julie Parrish, concludes, “Common Sense 101 says: Vote no on 101!” Readers will note that these same two women submitted most of the Arguments in Opposition.
