Oregon's Measures 68 and 69 pass by a landslide
By Bailey Ludlam
SALEM, Oregon: Oregonian's did not hesitate when it came to Measure 68 and 69 on May 18, primary election day. Minutes after 8 p.m. PT results starting rolling in and with little to no change throughout the night, the education bond measures remained in the 65% approval range. The Oregon School Bonds Matching, also known as Measure 68, proposed allowing state government to issue bonds to match local school district bonds. Measure 69, on the other hand, while still relating to education proposed authorizing the state to acquire, construct, improve, repair, equip and furnish buildings, structures, land and other projects, or parts thereof, that the legislative assembly determined would benefit higher education institutions or activities. Unlike Oregon's first election of year in January, Measure 68 and 69 saw little to no formal opposition.
May 18 election results, according to the Ohio Secretary of State, follow.
