(Tillamook County, Oregon) MooVoter is A Resource Forum for Tillamook County voters. The group is non-partisan and does not endorse any candidate or measure. It shows each of the races in Tillamook County, which candidates are running against which, and it gives members the chance to ask candidates questions directly.
The forum launched in time for the November 2020 election wherein Mayors and City Council Members throughout the county were up for election. The 2021 May Special Election is devoted to local fire boards, school boards, water boards, sanitary boards, ports, transportation, and emergency services throughout the county. In other words, the boards that are making the decisions that affect the people of Tillamook County on a daily basis.
Each race is color coded so that members can scroll and find what information they’re interested in. There is also the nifty “POPULAR TOPICS TAGS” feature. Click a tag and it gathers all posts that share that tag. For example: Tillamook Candidates have a violet background. One can either scroll and find those easily, or click on the tag that says, “City of Tillamook.” From there they can use the comment feature to engage.
There are no endorsements made by MooVoter, however there are questions posed to candidates and opinion polls for members. MooVoter’s mission is to give information about what is on the ballots, and hopefully, give members an opportunity to get to know the candidates and issues better. MooVoter gathers as much information as possible on candidates and measures. Most statements are pulled from Facebook or web pages published by candidates, news outlets, etc. All candidates are sent a notice that they have been included and a request to contribute a statement, unless they cannot be located. MooVoter is an opportunity to go beyond polarizing issues or party affiliation and learn about local candidates first hand, and how they intend to govern.
The rules are simple: You may respond to candidate threads with questions, endorsement, or opposition. Please be respectful in your language. No party politics. No trolls. #BeKind
