October 16 is the last day for citizens to register to vote in the coming election on Nov. 6th.
If you voted in the last election, you are already registered and will receive a ballot through the mail about two weeks before the election. If you have moved within Oregon since the last election, your ballot will not be forwarded and it will be necessary for you to change your address on your registration.
The process can be accomplished by going online to the Oregon Secretary of State’s website (sos.oregon.gov). You can also visit the Lincoln County Clerk’s online address. or visit the clerk’s office at the Lincoln County Courthouse on Olive Street. You will need to produce a valid driver’s license or other identification with your current address on it.
To further accommodate those residents of Lincoln County who are 18 years of age or older, members of the League of Women Voters will be registering voters at the Newport Library between 5-7 pm on Tuesday, October 9. The Newport Library is located at 35 NW Nye Street, Newport.
