By The Numbers, Your Oregon Ballot Scorecard

vote

Today marks the three-month mark until the Nov. 2 election in Oregon. And the Secretary of State's office today released the numbers assigned to the seven statewide measures that will be on the ballot.

So from here on out, here's how to refer to the three legislative referrals—and the four initiative petitions that turned in enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot (exciting, huh?):



Measure #70: A proposed constitutional amendment referred by the Legislature that would expand the availability of home ownership loans for veterans from Oregon.

Measure #71: A proposed constitutional amendment referred by the Legislature that would require annual legislative sessions with limits on those sessions.

Measure #72: A proposed constitutional amendment referred by the Legislature that would authorize exceptions to the state''s borrowing limit on real and personal property projects.

Measure #73: An initiative that would impose mandatory minimum sentences for certain major felony sex crimes and driving under the influence convictions.

Measure #74: An initiative that would set up a system of medical marijuana dispensaries statewide.

Measure #75: An initiative that would authorize a casino in Multnomah County, though that initiative will be a moot exercise unless casino backers win their appeal of a ruling by the Secretary of State's Office that their second companion measure failed to turn in enough signatures.

Measure #76: An initiative that would amend the state Constitution to permanently set aside 15 percent of Oregon Lottery revenues for parks and habitat.
