Oregon Ballot Measure Evaluation: Citizens’ Initiative Review Commission (CIR)

By

The CIR is an innovative way of publicly evaluating ballot measures so voters have clear, useful, and trustworthy information at election time.

The Oregon Citizens’ Initiative Review Commission (aka CIR) website can be found at the Healthy Democracy Oregon website where you can read about CIR’s origins. (But they clearly need a year-round blogger 🙂

If you want to track initiatives that will appear on the November 2012 ballot, use the Oregon Secretary of State Election Division’s Initiative, Referendum, and Referral Search engine. You can search measures from 1998 to the present, but you’ll need to get a little more creative if you want to find the text of pre-1998 measures.
