September 20th is National Voter Registration Day in the U.S.
In order to vote in the November 8, 2022 general election, you must be registered to Vote.

The amendment would also add language authorizing an Oregon court or a probation or parole agency to order alternatives to incarceration for a convicted individual as part of their sentencing––setting an example for Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Vermont.
