Former Oregon Secretary of State, Phil Keisling.

Status

This initiative was withdrawn on 12/3/05.

Another chance for open primaries?

This Oregon initiative met much opposition and failed to achieve ballot status in 2006, but was proposed again for the 2008 ballot. See: Oregon Ballot Measure 109 (2008)
