Kristof is able to file an appeal ahead of the March 17 ballot deadline, the Oregon Elections Division said.
The division explained its decision in a 文字 sent to Kristof
“After reviewing your candidacy filing, and the additional information you provided, we have determined you do not meet the qualifications to be a candidate for Oregon governor in 2022. We appreciate your campaign’s cooperation in responding to our inquiries, and we did not make this decision lightly,” compliance specialist Lydia Plukchi and elections director Deborah Scroggin said in the letter.
The Oregon Elections Division said that when verifying residency, it starts with a review of a potential candidate’s voter registration history, which showed Kristof has been registered to vote in Oregon since December 28, 2020.
According to the Divison’s letter, in addition to reviewing Kristof’s voter registration, the Division also examined his driver’s license information, home ownership and maintenance, employment history and income taxes in order to make its decision.
