Important Election Information
Have you recently moved to Bend or have you moved across town? Then update your voter registration information. You may do so on line at the Oregon Secretary of State’s website.
All Oregon residents vote by mail. To ensure your ballot is sent to the correct address, you must update your information. Even a person without a permanent home may register, according to Steve Dennison, Deschutes County Clerk
“If you are temporarily at a shelter or living at a camp, the State wants to know where you lay your head at night so we can send you a proper ballot,” he recently told the members of the League of women Voters. Ballots may be mailed to the designated shelter.”
The last day to update registration is Oct. 18th. Ballots will be mailed Oct. 19th.
If you do not receive a ballot by Oct. 24th, contact the clerk’s office so you can receive a ballot in time for the Nov. 8 election.
