In a time of hyper-partisanship, Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson says it’s challenging to stay above the fray but he’s doing his best to focus on his job.

“My focus as head of the elections, and the archives and the audits division, as well as corporations -- it keeps me busy; and so, I just keep politics out of it and try and do that which I think is best for the state,” he said.

Richardson has announced that he’s not running for governor. During his appearance on “Your Voice, Your Vote,” he gives advice to people seeking the state’s highest political office.

Also, he discusses a special election fight, President Trump’s voter fraud commission, and other issues.
