That would mean that anyone could vote in the primaries, so Democrats could vote for Republicans and vice versa.  It would also allow independents to vote.

 

Life long Oregonian and moderate Republican Mike Shiel of Redmond wrote a recent "Letter to the Editor" advocating for Measure 90 allowing for an open primary.

 

"So much in favor of open primary and so disappointed in both parties being against it.  I guess they have to take care of their own.  But there are so many independents in Oregon and that doesn't have much value for the two parties right now."

 

"Mike Shiel:  The moderate Republican that ruled the day for years and years in Oregon just isn't there anymore.  Kelly Bleyer:  What happened?  Mike Shiel: The party was taken over by the right wing of the party.  They're the ones that go to the meetings, set the tone, write the platform.  And don't get me wrong.  I can't stand the extreme on the left loonies drive me crazy."

 

The latest polls show the measure probably won't pass, with only 34 support for the measure while 43 percent oppose it.
