Voter Registration & Rights

 

Register to Vote in Oregon

Your registration has to be correct. You can still fix it, even on Election Day!

Your Oregon voter database info must be current. Any eligible citizen can register at www.oregonvotes.org. This is the preferred registration method because you can see right away if your registration is correct. Next best is filling out and turning in paper voter registration forms at County Election offices,  before you leave. Our #MotorVoter registration automatically registers new voters as NAV or “non-affiliated voter.” NAV is not the same as “Independent”, which is a newly recognized political party in Oregon.

Keep your voter registration updated, and keep active!
