Updating voting registration in oregon

Last week the Oregon legislature passed a bill that will dramatically modernize voter registration in the Beaver State.

In a groundbreaking approach, the new law will streamline registration at the DMV — commonly known as “motor voter” — by replacing a paper-based system with a new process in which the state identifies and adds eligible Oregonians to the rolls electronically — without any action needed by the voter.

You can download and print an Absentee Ballot Request Form and mail, fax or drop off the completed form at the Elections office.

Include your name, local address and mailing address where you want the ballot sent.

If you update your registration after the registration cutoff, please contact Marion County Elections.
