SALEM, OR -- Governor Kate Brown signed her own motor voter bill into law. The bill removes barriers to voter registration. It uses DMV records to register voters. "I think you all know in my role as Secretary of State I pushed for the new motor voter bill. It was my top priority and I'm absolutely thrilled to be signing this into law."
Governor Brown believes the legislation will allow Oregon to become a true leader in voter access. Oregon is the first state to have automatic voter registration. She says this voter registration is more cost effective, more secure and more convenient for Oregonians.
