Hot-button social issues dominate early signature gathering efforts for the November 2004 ballot, as seven reports filed at the Secretary of State's office last week reveal. Three of the seven reports are from campaigns affiliated with the conservative Oregon Citizens Alliance. Two of these are closely related to unsuccessful initiatives filed in the last election cycle--the Student Protection Act III and the Judicial Oath of Office Act. In addition, the OCA has filed a measure "to save the lives of the innocent," which appears to broadly address issues of separation of religion and state.

In addition, several other groups are gathering signatures to ensure road building in certain parts of the state, reinstate term limits, expand Oregon's medical marijuana act, and enact contribution limits campaign finance reform.
