The Oregon Local Option Liquor Privileges Bill, also known as Measure 3, was on the June 4, 1906 ballot in Oregon as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have enabled constituents in dry counties to vote on the legality of liquor in their local municipalities, such as towns. The 1904 Local Liquor Law, previously approved by voters, would be amended to allow so.[1]
