Red Header with the text "Vote No on A: Stop Landlords from Gouging Rents"

Portland landlords have put a measure on the November ballot that will allow landlords to gouge the rent on over 9,000 tenants previously protected by rent control.

The initiative, if passed, means every tenant who lives in an apartment run by a landlord with fewer than 10 units will now have to pay whatever the landlord wants. Current law will limit rent increases in 2024 to less than 2%. If Question A passes, a landlord could raise your rent 20%, 50%, 100% or even triple what you pay now if they could find someone to pay it. Whatever they choose. Vote No on A this November.

What Can I Do?

Vote NO on “An Act to Amend Rent Control” on November 7, 2023. You can:

    • Request your absentee ballot here;
    • Vote early in person at City Hall in October;
    • Or, vote at your polling place on election day. Find your polling place here.

Tell your friends, neighbors, coworkers, hook-ups, parents, etc. about what Question A will do to their rent and the rent of thousands of your neighbors.
