Issues

As the ethical compass of our state, Oregon needs a Secretary of State who will stand up and do the right thing. Representative Val Hoyle has proven to be that leader.

While House Majority Leader, Val passed the most progressive legislative agenda in recent Oregon history while maintaining strong relationships across party lines. Her progressive values and collaborative leadership style is exactly what the Secretary of State’s office needs to keep Oregon moving forward.

As Secretary of State, Val will fight to:

Break down barriers to the ballot

As the Chief Elections Officer, the Secretary of State is responsible for maximizing voter participation. Val is the strongest candidate to engage voters to the process and will fight to make sure every voice is heard and every vote is counted.

* Provide pre-paid postage for ballots

* Introduce same-day voter registration

* Have ballots and voting information in different languages

Get big money out of politics

Oregon is one of the only states without any campaign finance limits, making for some of the most expensive campaigns in the nation. Val is committed reducing the influence of money in campaigns and empowering the voices of everyday Oregonians.

*Reform Oregon’s campaign finance law

* Institute publically financed election

* Require campaigns and candidate to list their top donors

Increase government accountability and transparency

Val knows nothing is more important than making sure the people of Oregon have a government they can trust. That’s why Val is committed to passing new laws to increase accountability and transparency in state offices and agencies. Val will:

* Use the audit function to streamline government while protecting critical services

* Use the audit function to ensure businesses contracting with the state are following the rules

I want to thank all the people who supported me in a hard fought primary race. I think democracy benefits when voters get to choose a candidate. I am proud of the race that we ran and of my team. We were underdogs from outside the PDX metro area and came within single digits of winning a statewide race against two strong and well connected opponents. We left nothing on the field and I know I wouldn't have gotten here without the support of my friends and family. So thank you!

I called Brad Avakian last night to congratulate him and offer my support and endorsement. I plan to serve out the rest of my term representing House District 14 through January 2017 and working with Julie Fahey to get her elected in November. I know there will be other opportunities to be active in Oregon politics and I am looking forward to figuring out what's next! ... See MoreSee Less

In Oregon, women lead the way and our recent victories on pro-women legislation proves the difference that makes. I'll continue that fight as Secretary of State.

I stood up to fight for background checks on gun sales because it was the right thing to do. I'll continue to be a strong voice for common sense gun legislation and ensure our communities are safe for our families.
