See Who Wants an Initiative on the Ballot

The first step to getting an initiative on the ballot is to gather and file sponsorship signatures.

Chief petitioners who are paying circulators are required to submit signatures monthly during the signature gathering process. The 2014 Submission Log (PDF) lists those petitions and the number of signatures submitted up to that time. You can also view the 2014 Sponsorship Log​ (PDF).

The 2016 Sponsorship Log (PDF) provides a list of people who are gathering the 1,000 sponsorship signatures necessary to forward the petition to the Oregon Attorney General for the ballot title.

 To view or print the logs, install the latest Adobe Reader, which is available free.​
