Oregon votes to limit "unofficial" ballot boxes

The Oregon House passed HR 3090 bill that would outlaw "unofficial" ballot boxes and otherwise increase ballot security (requiring ballot boxes to be locked down, to have official clerks always on duty, etc). Interestingly, the bill explicitly does not outlaw candidates from collecting ballots and delivering them for you.

Previously, it was not illegal in Oregon for non-candidate groups to go door to door and collect ballots or to set up "unofficial" ballot boxes (like the one shown below).
