Voting is your right, and your responsibility!
- Are you a resident of Oregon?
- Are you a US citizen?
- Are you at least 17 years old?
If you answered Yes to all three questions, you have the right to vote - no exceptions!
OK, so you want to vote. What now?
Before you can vote, you have to register. Registering to vote is easy and fast!
- You can register online, in person at your County Elections Office or by mail.
- You can check here to see if you are registered.
Remember - If you plan to vote for the President this November, you must register no later than October 14, 2012.
Would you like some help?
Any Oregon voter with a disability can get assistance to:
- Register to vote
- Vote their ballot
- Return their ballot
Call your County Elections office or 1 (866) 673-VOTE (8683) to receive assistance. You can also request assistance from a caretaker, care provider or someone else you choose.
Would you like to help someone vote?
Sometimes, we all need some help. But helping someone else vote does not give you the right to tell them how to vote.
OK, so you registered to vote but now you need to learn about the issues.
There are some great tools available! You can get information about what is going to be on your ballot here.
- Vote Your Values is a great way to lay out how you feel about the issues.
- The League of Women Voters of Oregon has a lot of useful information including Voters Guides including accessible formats.
- The Oregon Secretary of State has a Civics Toolkit avialable online.
- Keep checking back. As more resources become available, we will be adding them here!
So you registered to vote. You learned about the issues. Now it’s time to vote!
Remember, help is available. All you need to do is ask! Simply call 1 (866) 673-VOTE (8683).
