Early Voting + Absentee Voting

Early Voting Dates: N/A

All registered voters in Oregon receive a vote-by-mail ballot. No excuse required.

If you will not be at your residence and would like to have you ballot mailed to a different address, you’ll need to apply for an absentee ballot (click here). Oregon does not have a deadline for these requests, however, we suggest at least 1 month before the election. Be sure to mail ballot in a timely manner so that it can be received by election day.
