I read the story in the Statesman about the open primaries and did some research; not much was needed to find the truth. The story is incorrect! We are not 1 of 9 without open primaries...we are 1 of 24 without open primaries. However, there are 26 states with some sort of open primaries, with 2 more states besides us trying to get this on a ballot. I did send an email to the reporter who wrote the story asking for a correction since it gives Oregonians the false sense that we are behind the times.
