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.
