Oregon Provisional Voting

If there is a question about your eligibility as a voter or if you need to vote at a county elections office in a county other than the one in which you live, you will be issued a provisional ballot. In order to obtain a provisional ballot, you need to fill out a provisional ballot request form at the county elections office. Your provisional ballot will not be counted until it is determined that you are eligible to vote.

You can now register to vote online! Just fill out the form found here to complete your registration. Note, online registration requires a current Oregon drivers license or state ID card.

Oregon Provisions for Voters with Disabilites

If you are an Oregon voter with a disability, you can receive assistance to register to vote, vote your ballot, or return your ballot by contacting your county elections office office or by calling 1-866-ORE-VOTES. You can also request assistance from a caretaker, care provider or someone else you personally choose.

Oregon Polling Place Locator

Oregon is a vote by mail state. You can find your ballot drop box location by utilizing Oregon State's ballot drop off directory.

If you have further questions on your polling place location, please contact your County Elections Office.

Oregon Polling Place Hours
