Mail-in Voting in Oregon Has Worked for Decades, Says Republican
“I think after 20 years, we’ve proven that our system is very secure and voters love it. The voters voted it in, they’ve never made an attempt to vote it out. I think they’re happy with it and I think it’s a 20-year history of success,” said Secretary of State Bev Clarno (R).
While some states are postponing their primary elections, Oregon Secretary of State Bev Clarno announced Thursday that the state’s May 19 primary will proceed as scheduled. “Because Oregon votes by mail we do not have to be concerned about social distancing issues at polling places that so many other states are struggling with,” Clarno’s office said in a statement.
