West Linn, OR–Oregon’s deadline to register to vote in the May primary election is April 26, 2022. The state of Oregon has closed primary elections, which means you need to select a major party (Democratic or Republican) in order to vote for your chosen partisan candidates in the May 17, 2022 elections.
Make sure you are able to vote in the partisan primaries by choosing a party and registering today. You can check your registration online at oregonvotes.gov/myvote and validate that your name, mailing address, residence address, and political party are correct. If you are not a member of a major party you will receive a ballot with only nonpartisan contests and ballot measures.
Any changes you need to make can be done online or by visiting your Clackamas County elections office before 5PM on April 26 at 1710 Red Soils Ct. in Oregon City. Multnomah County voter service locations (1040 SE Morrison St. in SE Portland and at 600 NE 8th St. in Gresham) are open later (7PM) and can also help you update your registration if you cannot get in before the Clackamas County Clerk’s office closes at 5PM.
Catherine McMullen, candidate for Clackamas County Clerk and certified elections administrator has prioritized voter education and outreach in the 15+ elections she has run. “I want to make sure that the clerk really does provide access to democracy by ensuring that all citizens who are eligible to vote, know exactly how and where to exercise their rights.”
The current clerk has been less forthcoming with elections information, such as neglecting to list the only official ballot drop box site in Wilsonville during the last election cycle despite there being an area specific measure on the ballot. Most recently, the dates for official ballot drop boxes was listed as open beginning October 14, 2020 and has not been updated.
