The presidential general election is Tuesday, Nov. 3. The last day for new Oregon voters to register to vote for the election is Tuesday, Oct. 13.
Oregon is Vote-By-Mail. You do not need to request an Absentee Ballot unless you will not be at your home address between Oct. 14 and Nov. 3. Check the status of your voter registration now with the county clerk or online at www.oregonvotes.gov – My Vote.
Ballots cannot be forwarded. The county clerk’s office starts addressing envelopes for insertion ahead of deadlines, so the sooner you update the more likely you will receive your ballot timely. Ballots will be mailed to all local active registered voters beginning Oct. 14. If you have not received a ballot by Oct. 23, call the county clerk’s office.
Voted ballots are due in the County Clerk’s office or in an Official Ballot Drop Box by 8 p.m. Election Day, Nov. 3. Postmarks do not count. Vote early. You do not have to wait until Election Day to vote.
If you are concerned with mailing your ballot back through the Postal Service or if you wait until the last week before the election to vote, use an Official Ballot Drop Box. Do not mail after Tuesday, Oct. 27 – Use an Official Ballot Drop Box.
If you have questions or concerns, call the County Clerk’s Office at 503-842-3402 for an official answer. Do not believe everything you see or hear. Ask the local office in charge.
