PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The campaign for unaffiliated candidate for Oregon governor Betsy Johnson says it has submitted nearly 50,000 signatures from registered Oregon voters for the former state lawmaker to be on the ballot this November.
Those signatures — totaling 48,214, according to Johnson’s campaign — now need to be certified by the secretary of state.
Since Johnson is running as a non-affiliate, she has a different set of rules to get on the general election ballot than the winners of the Republican and Democratic primaries.
The number of valid voter signatures required for a non-affiliated candidate to appear on the ballot is 23,744.
Johnson is running against Democratic candidate Tina Kotek and Republican Christine Drazan this November.
