OAR 165-007-0320 does not apply to this unique situation because it only applies to general elections, and not to special elections.

(a) The unique circumstances of this special election in the 1st Congressional District will allow each county to print the abbreviated name of each party who nominates a candidate beneath the name of the candidate. The abbreviated party names that will be printed on the ballot and in the voters’ pamphlet for this January 31, 2012 special election are:

Constitution Party

Democratic Party

Independent Party

Libertarian Party

Nonaffiliated

Pacific Green Party

Progressive Party

Republican Party

Working Families Party

(b) Because there will only be one contest on the ballot, no county will be at risk of running over to a second ballot card due to their printing of abbreviated party names beneath the candidate name. Since abbreviated party names will be printed on the ballot and in the voters’ pamphlet the key required by OAR 165-007-0320 will not be required.
