Deadlines
* New Registrations must be postmarked 21 days before Election Day.
* Party changes must be received at the Elections office 21 days before Election Day.
* Address changes for voters who are already registered in Oregon can be made up until polls close on Election Day—although we don't recommend cutting it that close. If you haven't received your ballot and believe that your registration may be out of date, contact your county elections office.

Can I vote in the Democratic primary?
In Oregon, by state law, you may only vote in the primary for the party for which you have registered. That means:
* If you are a registered Democrat, you may vote in the Democratic primary.
* If you are not a registered Democrat, you may not vote in the Democratic primary.

Am I eligible to vote in Oregon?
You may register to vote in Oregon if:
* You are a resident of Oregon.
* You are a United States citizen.
* You are at least 17 years of age (you will receive ballots for elections that occur after your 18th birthday).
