From the City Club of Eugene:

Public opinion surveys in Oregon, as well as nation-wide, have consistently shown strong bipartisan support for limiting political campaign contributions and increasing transparency requirements for big donors. Although there is a super majority of public support, Oregon’s Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that voter-passed campaign finance reforms violate Oregon’s constitution.

Is our current method of voting the best? Do the winners of elections reflect the popular will? Many election reform efforts have been directed at campaign finance, redistricting, voter registration and where and how to vote, with the goal of ensuring our elections are fair to all ideas, candidates and parties. Now the focus has turned to the method used to tally up votes to determine who wins.
