SALEM, Ore. — A coalition of good government groups today asked a federal court for a ruling that could pave the way for reasonable health and safety accommodations to gather signatures for redistricting reform during a pandemic. The People Not Politicians Oregon coalition is asking the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon to rule that Oregon violated the U.S. Constitution when it failed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by making reasonable accommodations in its 2020 ballot initiative process.
