Registration Portability?

YES. Many registered Oregon voters who move are still entitled to cast a ballot that will be counted — even if they did not notify the appropriate election official about their move before Election Day and the election official has not changed their registration.

Voters who move to a new address can notify their County Clerk of their new address up until 8 p.m. on Election Day. Voters who notify their county clerk less than 21 days before an election will get a replacement ballot if they have not already returned another ballot.

Voters will get their replacement ballot by mail if they notify their county clerk of their new address by the fifth day before the election. Voters who notify their county clerk of their new address within five days before the election can pick up their replacement ballot in person from their county clerk until and including the date of the election.

VOTING

ID required to vote?

NO.

Absentee Voting?

Vote-by-Mail has replaced Absentee Voting. See VOTE-BY-MAIL for more information.

Vote-by-Mail?

YES. Oregon is an "All-Mail Voting" state which means every registered voter automatically receives a Vote-by-Mail-ballot. Voters should make sure their information is current in order to receive their ballot.

The ballot return envelope can be stamped and mailed or dropped off at any OFFICIAL DROP BOX across the state. If a voter casts their ballot after the Wednesday before an election, the ballot should be left at a drop box site to ensure it's counted. Ballots MUST be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Early Voting?

Oregon is an "All-Mail Voting" state. There is no In-Person Early Voting because there are no polling stations in the state. Voters may return their Vote-by-Mail ballots as soon as they receive them before Election Day.

Youth Vote in Primary?

NO. Contact your state representatives and ask them to allow all voters who will be eighteen (18) on or before any Election to vote in the preceding Primary Election.
