ELECT SETH WOOLLEY TO
END LEGALIZED BRIBERY, ELIMINATE SPOILED VOTES,
FOR A STRONG VOICE FOR TRANSPARENT ELECTIONS
The Secretary of State administers our elections, audits our government, manages files and archiving, and sits on the Land Board. Seth is the only candidate qualified that is uncorrupted by any special interest money.
SETH WILL END LEGALIZED BRIBERY BY ENFORCING
MEASURE 47 (2006) WHICH THE VOTERS ENACTED
You, the citizens of Oregon voted to enact reasonable limits for campaign donations that would ensure broad support for candidates. The current Democratic Secretary refuses to enforce the law, despite no portion ever being overturned by the courts.
SETH WILL ENSURE A MAJORITY IN OUR ELECTIONS:
INSTANT RUNOFF VOTING
One hundred years ago, the citizens of Oregon voted to allow ranking candidates in order of preference when voting. The current Democratic Secretary successfully lobbied against both state and local legislation that would enable this constitutional provision, preventing people from voting for somebody other than the lesser of two evils. Spoiled elections are not meaningful elections. Instant Runoff Voting would ensure that if no candidate receives a majority of first choice votes, a "runoff" election is held instantaneously, taking into account voters' second choice votes.
SETH WILL BE FOR INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES AND
OPEN BALLOT ACCESS
The current Democratic Secretary fought tooth and nail and often in violation of the law to keep independents off the ballot. Seth's Democratic opponent helped to pass 2005 HB 2614, which made getting any independent on the ballot nearly impossible.
DON'T LET MAJOR PARTIES SPOIL YOUR VOTE AGAIN,
VOTE SETH WOOLLEY http://www.seth4sos.org/
