Vote by Mail
Oregon was the first state in the United States to conduct all of its elections using vote by mail. With this system your ballot will be mailed to you. You no longer need to find time to go down to the polling place to vote on Election Day; your ballot still needs to be in the Clerk's office or to one of the designated drop sites by 8pm on Election Day. This does not include postmarks!
