MAY 18, 2021 WILL SOON BE HERE!
We are now focusing our efforts on Getting Out The Vote (GOTV). Although the General Election had a turnout of 76% this last year in Josephine County, we see much lower turnouts during other elections (e.g., only 43% turnout for Josephine county in the 2020 primary election). Electing Democratic candidates into local positions is extremely important and our local elections should not be ignored!
Our next election is May 18, 2021, with most ballots being mailed out on or after April 28, 2021. (Registered voters with mailing addresses outside of Oregon may go out on or after April 19, 2021.)
Don’t forget – the deadline to file a candidate statement or a measure argument in the Josephine County Voters’ Pamphlet is Monday, March 22nd!
Thursday, March 18th marked the final deadline to file for the May 18, 2021 Special Election. These non-partisan districts include:
SPECIAL DISTRICT BOARD ELECTIONS
Grants Pass School District #7
Illinois Valley Rural Fire Protection District
Williams Rural Fire Protection District
Wolf Creek Rural Fire Protection District
Merlin/North Valley Sanitary District
Josephine Community Library District
Josephine Independent Rural Fire Protection District (Proposed)
LOCAL MEASURES ON THE BALLOT
17.97 City of GP-Three-year City Police & Fire Local Option Tax
17.98 Proposed Josephine Independent Rural Fire Protection District
17.99 TRSD-Bonds to improve student safety, programs and school facilities
Our efforts in electing local Democrats, such as our Grants Pass Mayor and members of Grants Pass City Council, are a testament to our abilities as a community to vote in responsible, genuine and hard-working Democrats. Let’s continue bettering our community by electing those candidates that best serve us.
