I'm not admitted to practice in Oregon, but everywhere that I practice, the voting rights of partners in general partnerships (as opposed to limited partnerships, llc's, corporations, etc.) are whatever they agreed upon.  There is no requirement that partners have equal voting rights, nor that the largest investor have the largest vote.  If there is no agreement, each partner has an equal vote.
