The Oregon Suffrage for Women Taxpayers Amendment, also known as Measure 1, was on the November 8, 1910 ballot in Oregon as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have granted all taxpayers, regardless of sex, the ability to vote.[1]

Aftermath

In 1912, Oregon suffragists once again presented women's suffrage at the ballot. Measure 1 of 1912 was approved by voters and women were granted suffrage. Measure 1, unlike Measure 10 of 1910, granted all women the right to vote, not just women taxpayers.
