Voting deadline arrives Tuesday

Oregon voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to turn in their vote-by-mail ballots for the Oregon Special Districts Election.

In Lake Oswego, voters may drop off their ballots at the election box at the Lake Oswego Public Library, 706 Fourth St. Clackamas County Elections Division personnel advise voters that as the election nears, it may be safer to drop ballots in drop box rather than risk sending them through the mail and having them arrive late.

Due to a mailing error, a very limited number of voters received two ballots for the special election, election officials said.

“The ballots were distributed within a small area of Clackamas County. The elections division is aware of the error. Voters who received two ballots should cast their ballot once and then discard the second ballot. If a voter should inadvertently cast two ballots, only one can be counted due to safeguards in the election system. Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact the elections division at 503-655-8510.”

Locally, voters may have a special interest in the Lake Oswego School District, which has three school board races on the ballot, two of them contested:

Position 2: Kevin Robertson and Sarah Howell

Position 3: John Wendland, incumbent, and Karen Delaney

Position 4: Liz Hartman, unopposed
