Ballots are in the mail

EASTERN OREGON – Wednesday, election officials started mailing ballots to every registered voter across Oregon for the November 3, 2020 General Election. Now is the time to review the Voters’ Pamphlet and decide how you will return your ballot. Voters’ pamphlets have arrived in the mail and can also be found online in multiple formats including a Spanish translation.

If returning your ballot by mail, no postage stamp is necessary because postage has been pre-paid by the state. We recommend mailing ballots by Tuesday, October 27th. All ballots must be received in an official drop box or at county election offices by 8 p.m. on November 3rd, postmarks do not count. Dropbox locations across the state can be found on our website at oregonvotes.gov/dropbox.

Voters with disabilities can find detailed information about accessible voting options through local county election officials or on our website. Additionally, we have digital audio, and accessible text, versions of the statewide voters’ pamphlet online

“Your ballot and vote is your opportunity to make your voice heard,” said Secretary Clarno. “Return your ballot as soon as you can either through the mail or one of hundreds of official drop boxes across the state. Never give your ballot to anyone else to return it for you who you do not know and trust.”

Oregon’s Vote by Mail system provides a convenient way to vote, and voters may also track their ballot. Voters can see where their ballot is in the process through My Vote.

As always, your trusted source of election information is OregonVotes.gov or your local county election officials.
