Eugene is where STAR Voting was invented and where it’s seen the strongest campaign to date. On last November’s Lane County Initiative, Eugene’s precincts voted decisively to pass STAR Voting and the Central Eugene precinct voted yes by over 70%.
To submit a ballot initiative for Eugene City elections we need up to 3 Chief Petitioners and a written charter amendment. Alternately, the City Council can refer the question to the ballot directly, avoiding the signature gathering process all together. Out of the 8 City Councilors the STAR Lane Initiative received endorsements from 4; Emily Semple, Mike Clark, Betty Taylor, and Jennifer Yey. We would need 5 to agree to refer STAR Voting to the ballot for Eugene.
