Chief petitioner is a ballot access term unique to Oregon. In Oregon, each ballot measure must have one or more chief petitioners. When the proposed ballot initiative is originally submitted to the Oregon Secretary of State under Oregon's law governing initiative and referendum, the names and addresses of the chief petitioner(s) must be provided at that time.
