Voting by mail is not as complicated as you might think. There are only a handful of steps:
All Oregon elections are held by mail. You can still request a one-time absentee ballot if you will be away from home during a specific election.
The signature on your absentee ballot application will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match.
Your signature on the return envelope will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match. If you forget to sign the return envelope, your ballot might be rejected.
Contact your Local Election Office if you have questions.
This is the statewide agency that is ultimately responsible for Oregon elections. You can contact them with questions, but your Local Election Office will probably respond faster.
