State Measures

Referred to the People by the Legislative Assembly.

Amends Constitution

Standardizes voting eligibility for school board elections with other state and local elections.

Result of "Yes" Vote

The "Yes" vote deletes enforceable provisions relating to voter eligibility; deletion would have no substantive effect.

Result of "No" Vote

The "No" vote retains unenforceable provisions that require citizens to be 21 years of age to vote in school board elections.


Amends Oregon Constitution. The Oregon Constitution requires voters in school district elections to be 21 years of age and residents in the school district for six months. It also requires voters to pass a literacy test to vote in school district elections. This measure would eliminate these school district voter eligibility requirements because they are unenforceable under the United States Constitution and federal law. Voters in school district elections would still have to satisfy all other voter eligibility requirements for local, state, and federal elections in Oregon. This measure would "clean up" the Oregon Constitution by deleting outdated and unenforceable language.

Estimate of Financial Impact

There is no direct financial effect on state or local government expenditures or revenue.

Local Measures

Lincoln County Library District

Local Option Tax for Library Funding.


Shall Lincoln County Library District levy 9¢ per $1,000 assessed value for five years, beginning 2010 to 2011, to fund your library?

This measure may cause property taxes to increase by more than 3%.


This measure will replace the expiring local option tax. Approval of this measure continues providing funding at its present level for the Lincoln County Library District and the funding it provides to libraries in Lincoln City, Newport, Siletz, Toledo, and Waldport.

It is estimated that this measure would raise approximately $311,601 in tax revenues for 2010 to 2011, $320,950 in tax revenues for 2011 to 2012, $330,578 in tax revenues for 2012 to 2013, $340,495 in tax revenues for 2013 to 2014, and $350,710 in tax revenues for 2014 to 2015. The estimated tax cost for this measure is an estimate only based on the best information available from the county assessor at the time of estimate.
