2020 Primary

The LPO conducts its own primary election at its own expense, independently of the state of Oregon’s primary. Our primary election determines what candidates we will nominate to the general election.

We want to run candidates for as many offices as possible!  Please help us fill in the blanks by becoming a candidate.  If you are interested in running for an office that already has a candidate, please don’t be discouraged.  We encourage contested races because this gives our members a choice of who they want to represent them.

Use this link to read the complete rules for our primary election. Note that non-LPO members seeking our “fusion” nomination are at a strong disadvantage, per our bylaws provision (Article 8, Sec. 2, subsection B) covering non-member candidates.

If you would like to be a candidate, or are just thinking about it, please send an e-mail to candidates@lporegon.org and give us your full name and office you would like to run for.

The deadline to become a candidate or to submit a candidate statement is April 24.  Ballots will be mailed May 4.  Election day is May 29. (Note that these dates can be changed by the LPO Board of Directors.)
