Some say the Independent Party's name may confuse voters who want to register to vote without joining a political party.  A bill in the legislature would make them change the name. The bill simply says a political party in Oregon cannot have the word “independent” in its title.  Linda Williams was sponsor of the 2006 petition to form the Independent Party. She say: “We did everything within our limited means to inform people it’s a political party. You’re a member. Exercise your right to vote.”  The Party has promised to take the issue to court if it moves in the Legislature.  Party member Sal Peralta: “In fact this bill was clearly unconstitutional, that I wasn’t sure how seriously to take it.”
