How to register to vote:


Vote by Mail

​Vote-by-mail is a modern and secure way to vote that Ore​gonians have been using for more than 20 years. Oregon has been an all vote by mail state for twenty years. Voters’ pamphlets and ballots are mailed to active registered voters two to three weeks before each statewide election. Voters can return ballots by mailed or at any official drop box across the state.

​​​​​​Ballots must be received or mailed with a valid post mark by 8 p.m. on Election Day.​​​​​​​​​


Voter Registration ID Requirements

To register to vote online you will need an Oregon driver’s license, permit or ID card number issued by the Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV). If you do not have an Oregon driver’s license, permit or ID card, you can still use the online voter registration application. The information you enter will display on a voter registration card (PDF document) that you will need to print, sign and deliver to your county elections office to complete your registration.
