Primary election registration deadline is mdnight Tuesday

Oregonians who are legally eligible to vote have until midnight Tuesday to register or change their registration to participate in the May 17 primary election.

“Oregonians have just a few hours left to ensure that they will be able to cast a ballot in this historic primary,” says Oregon Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins. “Every day we hear from voters who are eager to make their voices heard this May. I hope they take the time to review their registration and make updates if necessary.”

Voters can check their registration status at sos.oregon.gov/voting-elections/Pages/my-vote.aspx.

If voters need to register to vote or want to change party affiliation for the primary, they have three options:

• Online: Register by 11:59 p.m. on April 26 at sos.oregon.gov/voting-elections/Pages/my-vote.aspx.

• In person: By close of business at a county elections office on April 26. County election offices can be found at sos.oregon.gov/elections/Pages/countyofficials.aspx.

• Mail: Your voter registration card must have an USPS postmark of April 26 or earlier. Voter registration cards are available at post offices, DMVs, libraries, and county elections offices.

New registrations or updates cannot be handled on the phone.
