VOTER SERVICE: Empowering Voters

Voter Service is a major League contribution to our communities. League provides nonpartisan voter information for registration, candidates, ballot measures, voting rights and effective ways to influence public policy. Use these sources to learn about about local and state candidates and ballot measures.

All Oregon Voting is “Vote-by-Mail”

Ballots are Mailed to registered voters 2-3 weeks before election days. See Elections Calendar for detailed election date information.

Return your ballot by mailing to Lane County Elections (local address on voting envelope) or place into official drop boxes. They must be received by 8:00pm on election days.
