MEDFORD, Ore. -- Voter pamphlets for Oregon's upcoming special election will be sent out next week. The Jackson County Elections office says it will begin sending pamphlets on Tuesday.
The special election will take place on January 23rd where voters will determine the outcome of controversial Measure 101. Measure 101 would add a tax on hospitals, insurance companies and a few other entities.
Measure 101 was originally part of a bill passed by the Oregon Legislature during the 2017 session. Opponents collected enough signatures to put a repeal on the ballot.
