It’s time to contact your Oregon legislators about supporting SB 823, the “National Popular Vote” (NPV) bill.
Contact your own state legislators and also Oregon’s senate president Peter Courtney. The NPV is a way to make every voter’s vote count in a presidential election. Clicking on the links in the message below will get you to three suggestions for the text of a message, which you can personalize.
- Use this OLIS link for info on the bill’s status. https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2017R1/Measures/Overview/SB823

Spread the word to your friends in other parts of Oregon to help make every vote count!
