AFL-CIO Warns Oregon Voters: 'Your voting history is a matter of public record'

Voters in Oregon are receiving a mailer from the AFL-CIO that could imply their votes in the upcoming election will not be secret. 

“Your voting history is a matter of public record,” the mailer says on the cover of a trifold pamphlet, which lists the union’s positions and its endorsed state and local candidates inside.

In fact, a voter’s precise vote is secret, though the fact that they have returned a ballot in Oregon’s mail-in elections would be a matter of public record.

The reverse cover of the pamphlet features an historic photograph of a union strike, in which the worker in front is carrying a poster that reads: “DO NOT CROSS OUR PICKET LINE.”

The message was alarming enough to prompt some residents to forward the mailer to Breitbart News. The cover is depicted above.
