Oregon, unlike Idaho, is a vote-by-mail state and has a closed Primary coming up. Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters and if you are not registered to vote yet, the deadline is April 28.

Oregon does have a closed primary, meaning if you want to vote on a Partisan race you must be registered to vote in either the Republican or Democratic party. The deadline to change your party affiliation is also April 28.

If you have moved recently or changed your name or mailing address, you must update your voter registration. You can register to vote or update your voter registration online here.

If you need to pick up a voter registration card, you can do that at an Oregon post office or request one from the Clerks' Office. Oregon ballots will be mailed to registered voters starting on April 29. If you have not received a ballot by May 8, call the Clerks' Office.

Voted ballots must be received by the elections office no later than May 19 at 8 p.m. Postmarks do not count.

Oregon ballots returned by mail, through the U. S. Postal Service, are now prepaid. No stamp required. Official, 24/7 outside, Ballot Drop Boxes are still available in Ontario, Nyssa, Jordan Valley and Vale.

Please call the County Clerks’ Office at 541-473-5151 with any questions.
