Core Coalition Organizations:


 

The Equal Vote Coalition 501-c3

"The Equal Vote Coalition's mission is to promote true equality in the vote. The Equal Vote Coalition mandate is top-notch research, community education, and coalition building.

Our five core criteria for electoral reform are: Equality, Honesty, Accuracy, Expressiveness, and Simplicity. These criteria form the basis by which we evaluate and advance proposals for reform."


 

STAR Voting Action 501c4

STAR Voting Action serves as an umbrella organization for all STAR Voting campaigns, better allowing us to fundraise in advance, and to share resources between campaigns. The 501c4 allows donors to support the project as a whole, and then allows us to direct those funds to the campaign which needs the funding most, when they need it most.


 

STAR Elections

STAR Elections was launched in order to meet the demand to help host STAR Voting elections. While hosting your own elections with STAR will always remain free, we also offer election consulting and officiation. All profits from STAR Elections go to the STAR Voting Action 501c4 non-profit fund.


 

Campaign Committees:


 

STAR Voting for Eugene

The STAR Eugene campaign launched in 2019 and collected enough signatures to get on the May 19th 2020 ballot.

Unfortunately a number of signatures were unfairly rejected and the petition was denied. A referral is currently underway with the Eugene City Council and a legal appeal was filed in late 2019.


 

STAR Voting for Lane County

The STAR Lane campaign launched in 2019 and was on track to collect enough signatures to qualify for the November 2020 ballot when Covid-19 hit. Signatures are due July 4th 2021.


 

STAR Voting for Troutdale

The STAR Troutdale campaign launched in spring 2020 and has not yet begun signature collection due to Covid 19
