Main Content

Clackamas County is urging voters to make time to vote in the upcoming May 21 Special District election.

The voter registration deadline for new voters is April 30. Voter pamphlets were mailed out April 24 and all ballots will be mailed to voters on May 1. All Clackamas County ballot drop sites will also open May 1 and will be available 24 hours a day until 8 p.m. on May 21, Election Day. The recommended last day to mail ballots is May 16.

This election is particularly interesting because of the sheer number of ballot styles, or combinations based on what's being voted on and where the voter lives. In fact, there are 397 different ballot styles for this election, including 143 open positions on 45 different boards that oversee school, fire, water and miscellaneous districts.

Clackamas County wants voters to know that if they think their ballot does not match with what they think they should be voting on, they should contact the county by emailing elections@clackamas.us or calling 503-655-8510.

"We do everything possible to make sure each individual ballot is correct,” said Clackamas County Clerk, Sherry Hall. “If you notice something in your ballot doesn’t seem correct, please contact us right away so we can make sure you have the correct ballot.”

More information can be found on the County Clerk’s May 21, 2019 Special District Election webpage.
