Editor's Note: This story is a part of the 2020 Elections Issue. The Baro has put together this issue to inform the Oregon State University and greater Corvallis, Ore. communities about the 2020 Elections. This issue will dispel voting myths and include information on local elections, voting methods and tips, candidate profiles, and more.

Four ballot measures are being voted on by Oregonians this election cycle, and preliminary results show one constitutional amendment and three state statutes are passing.
