End Time: 3:30 PM
 Jackson Miller of Linfield College discusses how Oregonians participate in the political ritual of voting on citizen initiatives with more frequency and, at times, more enthusiasm than any other group of citizens in the United States. Over the past century, Oregon has had more statewide citizen-generated measures on its ballots than any other state, and, as a result, “direct democracy” has dramatically transformed the state’s political and social landscape.
