Special Election August 11th!

Did you receive a ballot in the mail last week? If you live in the City of Portland you should have! Portland is holding a special election on August 11th to fill the seat of City Commissioner Nick Fish, who passed away in January. During the May primary 15 people ran for Position 2, but no one received more than 50% of the votes. So city rules dictate that the seat must now be filled via special election. Because there is only one item on the ballot, Voter’s Pamphlets were not mailed in advance; instead the information was included with your ballot. You can also access the online Voter’s Pamphlet here.

If you have not received your ballot yet, call the Multnomah County Elections Office at 503-988-VOTE (8683). You can also check your registration status here, or sign up to track your ballot here and be notified when your ballot has been received and counted!

As always, Oregon’s Vote By Mail elections allow voters to stay at home, stay safe, and vote early! And now, you do NOT need a stamp to mail in your ballot. As long as you drop your completed ballot into a mailbox by August 6th (in-state only!) your ballot will be received on time and counted. If you are voting from an out-of-state absentee address you must mail your ballot at least one week before election day. Your other option is to return your ballot to any official drop site in Multnomah County before 8:00 pm on Tuesday, August 11th. You can find your closest ballot drop box here!
