ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A petition rally is being planned in Roseburg with hopes of moving Oregon's border.

Organizers of Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho said rural Oregon doesn’t feel like they’re being represented by Gov. Kate Brown or the legislators in Salem. They said they don’t want to move to Idaho, so they thought it would be better to become a part of the state.

They need a certain amount of signatures in each of the 20 counties that are trying to secede. Organizers said Douglas County needs around 3,000 signatures in order to get it on the November ballot.

They started collecting signatures in Douglas County last week.

The first petition rally will be held in Roseburg at 10 a.m. on Saturday at the Douglas County fairgrounds.
