2014 Oregon Ballot Measure 88
Oregon Ballot Measure 88 was a ballot measure in the U.S. state of Oregon in the 2014 midterm elections to determine whether or not to refer a "law creating a four-year driver's card, shorter than the usual eight years for a driver's license, for those who meet all other qualifications other than proof of legal presence in the United States". The measure was rejected.
The background for the referendum was a law SB 833 which would have allowed undocumented immigrants to get a driver's card which was passed by the Oregon Legislative Assembly and signed by Governor John Kitzhaber in 2013. An ad-hoc group, Protect Oregon Driver Licenses, subsequently collected more than the 58,142 signatures which was required to trigger a citizens' veto referendum and the question was put on the ballot as Measure 88 in the 2014 general election.
