Title: Oregon Law Review : Vol. 87 No. 3, p.1061-1100 : The Oregon Constitution and the Quest for Party Reform
Author: Clucas, Richard A.
Abstract: In Part I, I provide a history of political parties in Oregon, describing their importance from before statehood to the present. This section explains how the role of political parties has changed over time and why party reform has come to look so appealing. In Part II, I examine three reform proposals that have been discussed in Oregon over the past several years: a nonpartisan legislature, the top-two primary, and fusion voting. I conclude by discussing other factors underlying Oregon’s political problems and some alternative solutions.
