As Election Day nears, there’s still time to submit your ballot in Oregon. The deadline for all ballots is 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, and remember, it’s too late to mail them in. You can drop them off at your local elections office or at a secure ballot drop box. Oregon.gov has a handy search tool to help you locate your drop box to make sure your ballot is received by the right elections office in time to be counted.

Below you’ll find a reference sheet pointing to OPB and partner reporting on key Oregon races as well as videos that explain the ballot measures. We also have coverage of some key races in Washington.
