Voter Registration Drives

​​​​​The Secretary of State encourages all eligible Oregonians to register and vote.

Organizers of voter registration drives have five calendar days to turn in completed forms to a county elections office, and cannot coerce people to register with a particular political party.

Voter registration forms can be obtained from county elections offices. To obtain 500 or more applications, please fill out this form (PDF), and return it to the Oregon Elections Division.​​​​​​​​​​

Age and Citizenship Concerns

  • If you are 17 years old, you will not receive a ballot until an election occurs on or after your 18th birthday.
  • If you are going to receive your citizenship on or before an election, you must submit a voter registration card before the 21-day voter registration deadline.
  • After you take your oath, you must appear and provide evidence of citizenship to the elections office in the county where you live, on or before Election Day.
