Vote Yes on Measure 112
What is Oregon Measure 112?
Measure 112 is a ballot measure to remove language from the Oregon Constitution that allows for slavery and involuntary servitude as a form of punishment for a crime. Voting YES by November 8th will close this “slavery loophole” to ensure our state’s most important document better reflects our values as Oregonians – and as people.
What Will the Measure Change in the Constitution?
“There shall be neither slavery, nor involuntary servitude in this state
, otherwise than as a punishment for crime, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.”
The Oregon Constitution, Article 1 Section 34
