Jefferson Statehood Project

Jefferson State

Secession in the United States typically refers to state secession, which is the withdrawal of one or more states from the Union that constitutes the United States—but may refer to cleaving a state or territory to form a separate territory or new state, or to the severing of an area from a city or county within a state.

The people within the California / Oregon border region and surrounding rural counties are joining to form the State of Jefferson.  In a unanimous vote on Tuesday, Glenn County Supervisors began the process of seceding from California and joining the State of Jefferson. Last September, Siskiyou County was the first to pursue withdrawal from California with Modoc County following their lead shortly after.

None of the southern Oregon counties have been reported tp have held similar votes.  The Oregonian has given this idea a boost.



  1. I thought you might be interested to know that our Oregonian newspaper has been corrupted by the new owners and editors and do not reflect the actual values of Portland or for that matter our state. No matter what, the reality is that they will not be able to succeed and make their own new state, no more than the other ‘foolish’ states like colorado and I believe its one of the se states that also has the same ideas. Instead of working together to solve our problems, these people seem to be stuck in some kind of fox news bubble- Good article and well written- in case you wondered, I live in Portland oregon

  2. California Government is so corrupt. They cater to the Bay area so called green people and their agenda. stating how they want to save the earth by creating a huge global footprint building a Bullet train. WOW.
