Anyone planning to vote in Oregon’s Nov. 8 general election, which will decide who will be Oregon’s next governor, the President of the United States and higher taxes on large corporations doing business in Oregon and others, must be registered by the stroke of midnight October 19.
If you already have an Oregon driver’s license or ID card, go to www.OregonVotes.gov/myvote (or just click here) to make sure you’re registered, change your registration information if you’ve moved or to register for the first time.
You can also fill out paper registration cards available at libraries, post offices and local county elections offices. To find your local office, go to www.sos.oregon.gov/elections/Pages/countyofficials.aspx or just click here.
You might also be among tens of thousands of voters registered this year under Oregon’s “motor voter” program. Any eligible Oregon voter who obtains, renews or replaces a license, permit or ID card is automatically added to the state’s voter rolls.
As of June 1 ,the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office has also been adding eligible voters who did the same with the Department of Motor Vehicles in 2014 and 2015. Anyone registered under the “motor voter” program will receive a card asking if they’d like to opt out or sign up with a political party.
