Voter registration deadline is Tuesday


People who are not registered to vote in any Oregon county may register online at oregonvotes.gov no later than 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 16. The online option is available only to those with a valid Oregon driver’s license, DMV-issued identification card or learner’s permit. 

Other registration options: 

  • Submit a voter registration form to the Elections Office by 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 16.
  • Mail a voter registration card to the Elections Office with a postmark no later than Tuesday, Oct. 16.

New voters who will turn 18 on or before the Nov. 6 Election Day can register by the Oct. 16 deadline and receive a ballot, even if they are still 17 on the deadline date.

For those traveling to, or residing in, Eugene, the Lincoln Street ballot drop box at Lane County Elections will be open now through Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 5 p.m. to make it easier for voters to drop off completed registration cards.

“We are opening the drop box to accommodate Lane County citizens who may not be able to come to our office during regular business hours,” said Lane County Clerk Cheryl Betschart.
