State of Oregon Special Primary Election
December 5, 1995

Dear Oregon Voter:

On December 5, 1995, a Vote-by-Mail special election will allow Democratic and Republican voters to nominate candidates to fill a U.S. Senate vacancy. On January 30, 1996, the two successful nominees -- and qualified independent and minor party candidates -- will compete in a second Vote-by-Mail election in which all registered voters can participate.

This Voters' Pamphlet lists each Democratic and Republican candidate who will appear on the ballot. Only those candidates who paid $1,000 and provided statements appear in the pamphlet's main section. Important information is also included about registering to vote, updating your registration, and casting your mail-in ballot.

Important: According to political party rules and state law, to participate in the December 5 election, you must be registered to vote as a Republican or Democrat no later than November 14, 1995. Your voted ballot must be received by county elections officials, either by mail or at a drop-off site, by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, December 5. Postmarks do not count.

For sight-impaired or blind persons, a tape copy of this pamphlet can be obtained by calling Vision Resources for Independent Living at (503) 284-3339.

Remember, your ballot is yours, and Oregon law provides stiff penalties for fraud and undue influence. Please take the time to read this Voters' Pamphlet, and exercise your right to vote.
