Ballot summary

The ballot title read as follows:[1]

Prohibits information on election ballot giving one candidate an "advantage" (undefined) over another, including incumbency.

Result of "Yes" Vote: "Yes" vote prohibits printing anything giving candidate "advantage," except party affiliation, on ballot by candidate's name; prohibits identifying incumbent judicial office candidate as the incumbent.

Result of "No" Vote: "No" vote retains current law allowing election ballot to include certain information near candidate's name and to identify incumbent judicial office candidate as the incumbent.

Summary: Under current law, ballot must include the designation "incumbent" following the name of each candidate for Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Oregon Tax Court, and circuit court who is regularly elected or appointed judge of the court to which the candidate seeks election. For other than nonpartisan office, party affiliation or the word "nonaffliated" must be printed near the candidate's name. When candidates who are running for the same office have similar surnames, ballot must include location of residences opposite the candidates' names. Measure prohibits anything, other than party affiliation, after or near a name that would give a candidate an "advantage" (undefined) over another candidate. Prohibition includes using the word "incumbent" following the name of an incumbent candidate for judicial office. Other provisions.
