Oregon Primary Election One Week Away

The Oregon Primary election is next Tuesday, May 21st.  The Oregon Secretary of State has provided this guidance for Oregon voters:

Dear Oregon Voter,

The May primary election is underway!

Oregon’s 36 county clerks began mailing out ballots on May 1st. If you haven’t already returned your ballot, remember to do so before 8 p.m. on May 21st.

You can:

  • Mail your ballot back to your county clerk. Postage is already included. Don’t forget to sign your envelope, and make sure your ballot is postmarked by Election Day!
  • Return your ballot to any county clerk’s office. They’ll make sure it gets sent to the county in which you’re registered to vote.
  • Drop your ballot at any official, secure dropbox. Find the nearest one on our website.

Want to know if your ballot has been received? You can always check the status of your ballot through the Secretary of State’s My Vote website.

Lost your ballot? Made a mistake? Don’t fret. Your county elections office can help you get a new one.

Didn’t see a candidate on your ballot you were expecting to? Remember that in Oregon, the major political parties have chosen to hold closed primaries. That means you must be a registered member of that party to vote in their primary election.

Any other questionsAlways use official sources of trusted information. You can learn more at OregonVotes.gov or at your county elections office.
