How can I return my voted ballot?
Official Ballot Drop Box: You may return your voted ballot at any official ballot drop box in Oregon. You do not need to apply postage to your return envelope. A roster of Marion County's Official Drop Boxes can be found
Mail: Beginning 2019, you do not need to apply postage to your return envelope when mailing it. Postmarks count IF mailed on or before Election Day AND received within 7 days of Election Day.
We strongly encourage early voting! It is best to have your ballot in the mail at least a week before Election Day.

I accidentally marked the wrong selection while voting. What can I do?
Draw a line through the mistaken selection. Then proceed with voting as intended. To make your intent as clear as possible, you may circle your intended selection, or write “yes” next to the intended selection and “no” next to the mistaken selection.
If you make a mistake that cannot be corrected in this manner, we may provide you with a replacement ballot. Call our office at 503-588-5041.
Will my vote still count if I don’t vote on
all of the races?
