Starting July 4th, 2016 (Ironically Independence Day) the Independent Party of Oregon will begin it’s own online presidential preference poll. In addition, the Party is including it’s annual member survey in conjunction with the Presidential poll.
There are three things to note about this poll/survey.
The Presidential poll will include Clinton, Sanders, Trump, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. In addition, it will allow voters to chose “None of the above”
The Presidential poll will be done by approval voting, allowing a voter to select all candidates they may be satisfied with. This will allow a voter for example, to vote for Stein, Sanders and Clinton, so that the can select their real favorite without worrying about Trump benefiting from them voting for a minor party candidate.
The vote and even the survey is open to non affiliated voters as well as Independent Party members. This is a true i/Independent preference poll
For the first time, the IPO will be surveying members on social issues.
HERE’S A SNEAK PREVIEW OF THE IPO VOTERS PAMPHLET AND THE SURVEY QUESTIONS.
The Pamphlet also has instructions on how both party members and non affiliated voters can participate in the election/survey.
