Notes of Decisions

Require­ment of “legally called elec­tion” governs only in absence of contrary county law, and did not prohibit county board from holding special elec­tion on initiative peti­tion where county charter provided for such special elec­tions. Brummell v. Clark, 31 Or App 405, 570 P2d 671 (1977)
