2020 Ballot Measures

The Washington County Democrats want to help you navigate through your voter pamphlet. Below are the measures on the ballot for Washington County and Portland Metro.

It is the standard practice of the Washington County Democrats to take all measures for endorsement to vote at our Central Committee meetings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our March and April meetings were cancelled.  The Executive board met (virtually) to discuss, and vote regarding these ballot measures.

The information provided on these measures is active.

That means that we will update our information to keep you up-to-date as we learn more.
You can help pass along this information to your fellow Democrats by becoming a Neighborhood Leader.
