What You Need To Know About Oregon’s January Special Election:

Measure 101 ballots will be delivered by mail to registered Oregon voters the first week of January, and are due by January 23. Voting yes on Measure 101 means protecting healthcare for Oregon families – including 400,000 children, as well as seniors and people with disabilities – who otherwise couldn’t afford a doctor’s visit and are often forced to go to the emergency room when they get sick.
