What's going on with voter registrations?

On a local radio program, I heard three callers say that for unexplainable reasons they were sent voter pamphlets and/or ballots as not being registered with a party. All three said that they had registered as Democrats and had never changed their registration.

One caller was from Multnomah County, another from Clackamas and a third from Marion.

I was interested in that especially because my 23-year-old son in Washington County has been registered as a Democrat ever since he signed up when he was 18. But this year he got a notice that he was unaffiliated.

So what was going on with the registrations in four different counties?

And what other goings-on can we expect in November?
