One week to have your vote counted

Occasionally, the elections office will “challenge” a ballot because a signature is missing or a signature doesn’t match the registration record. 28,322 ballots are being challenged in Oregon this election.

If your ballot has been challenged, you must resolve it by Tuesday, November 22. Otherwise, your vote will not count. 

If you are concerned that your ballot was challenged because of your disability, please call us at 888-339-VOTE (888-339-8683).

 

In Oregon, you must sign your ballot envelope. That’s how election officials know it was you who voted. It’s ok if your signature changes, or you can’t write, because of a disability. You just have to fill out a Signature Stamp Attestation form (SEL 540). Call your local elections office to fill one out before you vote. No one else can sign for you.
