Voting Information for Oregon
Don’t miss your next election!
Don’t miss your next election! Oregon voters are automatically registered at the address on their state issued ID. It is also is a vote-by-mail state. As long as your state issued ID or registration form lists your current address you will receive a ballot. If you have moved or are new to Oregon please update your information by registering to vote. Note that voters must declare a party to participate in Oregon’s closed primary elections; party affiliation is not a part of automatic voter registration.
In most cases, only registered voters affiliated with a particular party may vote in its primary. However, the Republican Party allows unaffiliated voters to vote in select state offices primaries. See Oregon Republican Party or Democratic Party sites for more details.
Oregon voters that are automatically registered via their DMV records need to declare their party online or by mail.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.Find Your Representatives
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.
