Election day is quickly approaching, and the Lane County Elections Office would like to encourage voters to register to vote or update their voter registration now, to be election-ready for the May 21, 2024 primary election.

Voters in Lane County must register to vote or make changes to their party affiliation no later than April 30, 2024.

Oregon is a closed primary state. All voters will have an opportunity to vote on issues and nonpartisan positions. Only voters who are registered members of political parties may vote for their respective party’s candidates in a primary election. It is important to confirm or update your party affiliation now, but no later than April 30 if you wish to vote in a party’s closed primary. 

“This is the time when every voter should be confirming their registration, including checking their address and party affiliation,” said Lane County Clerk Dena Dawson. “And, if you aren’t registered to vote, you still have a chance to participate in this election if you get registered by April 30.”

The voter registration deadline is April 30, 2024. If a voter registration form is hand delivered, it must be received no later than 5 p.m. on that day at the Election Office, 275 W. 10th Ave. If mailed, it must be postmarked no later than April 30, 2024. If registering via www.oregonvotes.gov, it must be completed no later than 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2024.

Local ballots will be mailed starting on May 2, 2024.  To track the status of a ballot, visit www.oregonvotes.gov/MyVote.
