Petition 50, which would allow Oregonians to decide who will redraw Oregon’s legislative districts in 2011, has gained strong last-minute support. More than 100,000 signatures have been gathered to date, but they need your help to gather more than the 110,000 valid signatures needed before July 2. Whether or not you have decided who would be best suited to draw Oregon’s legislative districts, your signature is needed on Petition 50 (sign a petition here), so that Oregonians have the opportunity to further vet the issue.
