Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 18, is the last day for Oregonians to register to vote in the November 8 general election. Elections officials also encourage voters who need to update their voter registration information to do so by 11:59 pm on October 18.

Oregonians can check their voter registration status on the Oregon Secretary of State website.

You may need to register to vote if:

  • You recently turned 18. (Oregon voters can pre-register to vote once they turn 16.)
  • You moved to Oregon from another state and have yet to change your registration.
  • You have been convicted of a felony. Oregonians with a felony conviction have their voting rights restored once they are released from incarceration, but they need to re-register to vote.

You may need to update your voter registration if:

  • You have recently moved to a new county, district, or have a new address.
  • You have recently changed your name.
  • You want to change your party affiliation.

Voters can both register and update their voter information online. Voters can register in-person at the Multnomah County East Building in Gresham and Multnomah County elections building on SE Morrison St. and SE 11th Ave. Voters who are updating their names may want to do so in-person to ensure that their new signature form is promptly processed. If a registered voter makes any changes to their voter information in between the registration deadline and election day, elections officials request that they call their county elections office to ensure that their ballot arrives on time.
