Make sure your voice is heard.

This year’s general election (Tues., Nov. 8) will decide many important positions in Oregon, including the US Senate, US House of Representatives, governor, and state legislative seats.

But to ensure that each vote is counted, Portlanders must register by the Tues., Oct. 18 deadline at 11:59 p.m. That is also the cutoff to update any information, such as political party affiliation, or name and address changes.

To do so, simply visit the secretary of state’s website, where an online portal is also available in Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Somali, and Russian. There is also an in-person option — fill out this form and take it to your county elections office.
