Haven't received your ballot yet for the May 17 election?

May 7, 2022 — Lane County ballots were mailed on Thursday, April 28, and registered voters should have received their ballots by May 4. 

Voters who did not receive their ballots in the mail should do one or more of the following:

• Go to www.oregonvotes.gov to confirm they are registered.

• If they have moved to any new address, even the apartment next door, they will need to update their registration. Voters can update online at www.oregonvotes.gov if they have a valid DMV license, identification card or permit number. The same website can be used to update or remove a mailing address. They can also complete a registration card and mail or deliver it to Lane County Elections.

Ballots may not be forwarded by law. If voters are not going to be at a regular residence or mailing address, they need to submit a request for an absentee ballot at the temporary location. 

If voters are unsure what to do, they should call Lane County Elections at 541-682-4234 to determine what action they must take in order to receive a ballot. 

Assistance is available over the phone at 541-682-4234 (weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and via email at [email protected].

Voters may drop off their ballots at one of many official drop box locations listed in the insert included with their ballot. Drop boxes are now open and will remain open until 8 p.m. on Election Day. A map of drop box locations is also available online.

Voters may also return their ballots via mail by using the pre-stamped return envelope. Ballots must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, May 17; however, voters are encouraged to return them to the post office before May 17 to ensure their ballots are postmarked by the deadline.

In Florence, ballots can be dropped off at the Florence Justice Center, 900 Greenwood St.
