Oregon’s voter registration deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 16, for those who want to vote in November’s midterm elections.

You can register to vote:

  • in person at elections centers;
  • by mail as long as it’s postmarked by Tuesday; or
  • online at oregonvotes.gov if you have an Oregon Driver’s License or ID.

“It’s important to register to vote because you won’t get a ballot if you don’t and your ballot is your way to voice your vote,” said Tim Scott, Multnomah County elections director.

Ballots get mailed out on Oct. 17. The ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day, which is Nov. 6.

Issues on the ballot this November include prohibiting state funding for abortion and a measure to repeal the state’s sanctuary law. Key races include the race for governor.
