SPECIAL NOTICE ON REDISTRICTING:
Redistricting from the 2020 Census will begin in 2021 as Federal, State and local Districts redistrict electoral boundaries based on new 2020 Census population numbers. The Oregon Legislature passed Congressional and State legislative boundaries during the 2021 Legislative Special session.

BE SURE TO SIGN YOUR BALLOT!
You must sign your ballot, and the signature must match the one on your registration. Your ballot will be invalidated for lack of signature.
Check your mail for ~2 weeks after the election to make sure you didn’t get a ballot invalidation notice. If you receive a notice, get in touch with the elections office right away to try to get your vote counted.
