The Oregon Vacancies Created by Recalls Amendment, also known as Measure 7, was on the November 2, 1926 ballot in Oregon as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure provided that if an official is recalled, the vacancy shall be filled immediately in the manner provided by law, instead of the provision requiring two votes at the same recall election, one upon the question of the official’s recall and the other upon the election of the official’s potential successor.[1]

Measure 7 amended Section 18 of Article II of the Oregon Constitution.[2]
