Independent Party of OR Opens Primary

BEND, OR -- Oregon voters who aren’t a registered member of a party will be allowed to vote in the Independent Party Primary on May 15. Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship tells KBND News, "What that means for anyone who's non-affiliated, they can make a choice to receive the Independent Party Ballot and vote that, rather than the non-partisan ballot."

 

Those Unaffiliated voters who want to take part must request an Independent ballot from the county elections office before 5 p.m. on April 24. The Independent Party of Oregon became the state’s third “major party” in 2015, and first opened its primary in May 2016.
