Your Vote Matters—Make Sure It Counts
If you haven’t already voted, vote NO on Measure 97 and return your ballot today. Once you mark your ballot NO on 97, be sure to sign the back, and then either mail it or deliver it to an official drop site location.

Don’t forget: ballots are due before 8:00pm on Tuesday, November 8 and postmarks do not count.

A $6 billion tax on sales would be an enormous burden for all Oregonians. So why are the proponents playing games with the facts? The backers of Measure 97 have doubled down on misleading Oregon voters about the realities of their massive tax proposal because they don’t want you to know the truth.
Measure 97 would increase costs to Oregon families, consumers, farmers and small businesses for everything from food, gasoline, utilities, phone service, cable TV and internet, to insurance, medicine and healthcare. Its regressive tax on sales would hurt those the most who can least afford it. That’s just not right.
And, although they claim the revenue from Measure 97 would be dedicated to education, that's patently false. As stated by the nonpartisan Legislative Counsel, the legislature’s own top legal authority, the legislature could spend the money “any way it chooses” – with no further vote of the people.
