The Oregon Number of Signatures Needed for Recall Referendum Amendment, also known as Measure 1, was on the November 6, 1984 ballot in Oregon as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure required signatures from fifteen precent of the number of constituents who voted in the preceding gubernatorial election to put a recall referendum on the ballot. Prior, twenty-five percent of the number of constituents who voted in the preceding Supreme Court justice elections was required.[1]

Text of measure

The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

QUESTION - Shall a recall election be required upon petition of fifteen percent of the gubernatorial electors in a public officer’s district?

EXPLANATION - Amends Oregon Constitution. A recall election of a public officer now requires a petition from twenty-five percent of the number of legal voters who voted in the public officer’s district at the preceding election for Supreme Court Justice. The measure would reduce the number required to file a petition for recall to fifteen percent. The required percent of electors would be determined based upon the most recent election for Governor.
