Voters can confirm their ballot has been received and accepted by visiting www.oregonvotes.gov/myvote. The site refreshes daily, so it could take up to 48 hours to display the accurate information.78576
Voting early allows extra time for your ballot to be received by county election staff. It allows time to confirm your ballot has been received prior to the election and allows more results to be included in the Election Night tallies.78576
Oregon has been voting by mail exclusively since voters approved Measure 60 in 1998 by the overwhelming margin of 69.4% to 30.6%. However, local elections have been conducted by mail in Oregon since Linn County Clerk Del Riley first pioneered the process in 1981 and it was made permanent state-wide for local elections in 1987.
