Subject to ORS 248.015 (Precinct committeepersons) (4), a person may participate as a write-in candidate for precinct committeeperson by filing with the county elections official a declaration of write-in candidacy. The declaration shall be made on a form prescribed by the Secretary of State by rule and must be filed no later than 8 p.m. on the date of the election. The form prescribed by the secretary must require that the person:


States that the person will serve as a precinct committeeperson if elected;


Requests that the county elections official count any write-in votes received by the write-in candidate; and


Attests that the person is legally qualified to serve as a precinct committeeperson.


Upon receipt of the form filed under subsection (1) of this section, the county elections official shall determine whether the person meets the qualifications to serve as a precinct committeeperson. If the county elections official determines that the person meets the qualifications, the county elections official shall record the write-in votes received by the person during that election.


If no person qualifies as a candidate or write-in candidate for a position of precinct committeeperson, that position shall be vacant. [2019 c.675 §16]
