Don't forget to register to vote!

Remember not to forget! -

KOIN - Drivers line up to drop off ballots outside Multnomah County election headquarters.The last day to register to vote in the Nov. 8 election is Tuesday, Oct. 18. You can register online at the Oregon Secretary of State’s web page at sos.oregon.gov.

You can also check there to make sure you are registered properly or if you want to change your party affiliation or other information.

In order to register, you must be at least 17 (but you won’t get a ballot until after your 18th birthday), a resident of Oregon and a U.S. citizen. Proper identification is required. You also can register by mail by downloading a form from the same web page, or picking up a form at a local library, post office or the Multnomah County Elections office at 1040 S.E. Morrison St., Portland.

There has been a lot of publicity about the new “motor voter” law. This law does not automatically register anyone with a driver’s license. You are automatically registered via “motor voter” only if you apply for or renew a driver’s license, driver’s permit or identification card at the Department of Motor Vehicles.
