It looks as though Oregonians will get a chance to vote on the "top-two" primary system that their neighbors to the North have adopted.
Under the system, all candidates run on the same ballot in the primary. The top two, regardless of party, square off in the general election.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Washington could implement the system. Now supporters in Oregon are likely to have enough signatures to put an initiative on the ballot in November to do the same, as the Statesman Journal reports.
