Register to vote at 16!

Did you know? If you are at least 16 years old you can register to vote! 

To be eligible to register to vote in Oregon you must be 1) a citizen of the United States, 2) a resident of Oregon, and 3) at least 16 years old.  After you are registered your County Clerk’s office will automatically mail a ballot to you for the next election after your 18th birthday.

If you register as soon as you are eligible you won’t have to remember to register at least 21 days before that first election after you turn 18. And if it is one of the many local but still important elections that don’t get national press you’ll still get your ballot mailed to you and have the opportunity to vote even if you didn’t know about it yet. You will still be able to vote in each and every election once you turn 18! Let your election administrator track which election that may be. It is an important part of our job; to send all registered voters a ballot for each election they qualify for.  

Your job is to get registered to vote as soon as you are eligible! Eligible today?  Register today!  Register to vote online at If you don’t have an Oregon drivers license, ID, or permit you’ll have to register on a paper registration form.  Send me a message and I can drop off or mail a registration form to you.

Get registered and get ready to vote!
