How Vote By Mail Works in Oregon
Oregon is a vote-by-mail state, meaning that all registered voters receive a ballot in the mail. The deadline to register to vote and receive a ballot in the mail is Oct. 13th.
After you complete your ballot, be sure to return it ASAP!
- Return in person by Nov. 3rd at 8 p.m. You can return to any county dropboxes or your county election office.
- Or drop your ballot in the mail - your ballot must be mailed so that it is received by Nov. 3rd. We recommend mailing your ballot at least two weeks before as the post office is not always reliable. The best intentions or postmark will not matter if your ballot is received after Nov. 3rd - your ballot will not count.
