Tuesday, October 13 is the last day for Oregonians to register to vote in time for the November election.

Ballots must be received by the elections office or placed in an official ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on November 3 in order to be counted. Ballots postmarked and mailed by that date will not count — they have to be received by elections officials by the Tuesday at 8 p.m. deadline.
