ORKC endorses candidates, ballot initiatives, and party policies in local, state, and national government. We do so only after thoroughly vetting them and holding an informed discussion and public vote by our membership.
An endorsement from ORKC reflects the degree to which the candidate’s policies and practices are consistent with the political program of the organization. Vote “Yes” in this case.
Why did we not endorse in some races? Sometimes neither candidate is consistent with our organization’s goals. We did not list those races below. But if confronted with a choice between OK and worse, we encourage you to support the more progressive alternative. Vote “strategically” in this case.
But not all alternatives are acceptable. An explicit rejection from ORKC reflects the degree to which we believe that the policy or candidate would only make matters worse. Vote “No” in this case.
