• If adopted, the initiative will make STAR Voting the default voting method for all Oregon elections, including local, statewide, federal, and presidential elections.
  • For partisan elections, a STAR Voting partisan primary for each party would be held, which would advance the top candidate from each party to a STAR Voting general election.
  • For nonpartisan elections, the act would eliminate primaries as the default and voters would only need to vote once, in November. Jurisdictions may opt to have a top-five primary for a given race if desired.
  • Jurisdictions that have already adopted other alternative voting methods would be unaffected, and jurisdictions would be allowed to change or upgrade their voting method in the future.
