(Oregon Capital Chronicle) Oregon’s senior senator and congressman are renewing their efforts to expand the mail voting system Oregon pioneered more than two decades ago to the rest of the nation.Many voting rights groups, including the End Citizens United/Let America Vote Action Fund, are supporting the measure. The group’s president, Tiffany Muller, described it as crucial to ensuring every voter’s voice can be heard.  “When we expanded access to voting in the 2020 election, there was record turnout across the country,” Muller said. “It’s clear that when Americans have access to the voting booth and have the freedom to make their voices heard, it gives more people the ability to participate in our democracy.”
