Oct. 13 was the last day to register to vote in Oregon

The ballots will start mailing out on Oct. 14. The last day to mail in a ballot will be Oct. 27.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Tuesday was an important day for people who want to vote in Oregon: It was the last day to register.

The state will start mailing out ballots on Oct. 14. The last day to mail in a ballot will be Oct. 27. Election Day is Nov. 3.

Tim Scott, the director of elections for Multnomah County, said people without a driver’s license need to register on a paper form.

“We don’t want there to be any surprises,” Scott said Tuesday. “There’s a lot of passion around this election; there’s a lot of people who want to vote.”

The paper forms were available on the county’s website or could be picked up at the library or the elections offices in Southeast Portland and Gresham. The offices were open until 7 p.m. Tuesday. 

Scott said those who registered in the past should still check to make sure all their information was up to date. If someone has moved or even just added or removed a P.O. Box, it can trip things up with the mail delivery process.

Scott advised people to visit the Secretary of State’s election website at oregonvotes.gov. There, people can log into My Vote and look at their registration details.
