Oregon Primary Election Voter's Pamphlet, no statement from Ron PaulSubmitted by khaindel on Thu, 04/24/2008 - 20:07
I just received my Oregon Primary Election Voter's Pamphlet and I am shocked. There is no picture of Ron Paul, no statement from Ron Paul and if I didn't know better, I wouldn't know he is going to be on the Oregon ballot. The only reference to Ron Paul is on page 6 that shows a list of all State Candidates.
I can't even imagine why this happened. When I researched the Oregon Voter's Pamphlet on the internet, it references that each candidate must pay $1000 to have their statement submitted and printed. Why didn't this get done? If the campaign didn't want to or couldn't spring for the $1000, the rest of us certainly would have.
This pamphlet goes out to every registered voter in Oregon. That is huge coverage for a very small fee. Many, many voters use the pamphlet as their guide to fill out their mail-in ballot.
Fortunately McCain isn't shown either. So, to the uninformed voter, it appears your only choices for President are 2 Democrats.
Isn't that special.
