Qualifications to Register to Vote
To register to vote in Oregon, you must be:
- A U.S. citizen
- A resident of Oregon
- At least 16 years old
If you're not yet 18 years of age, you will not receive a ballot until an election occurs on or after your 18th birthday.
What You Will Need
To register to vote online, you'll need an Oregon driver's license, permit or ID card number issued by the Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV).
If you do not have an Oregon driver's license, permit or ID card, you can still use the online voter registration application. The information that you enter will display on a voter registration card (PDF document) that you'll need to print, sign and deliver to your county elections office to complete your registration.
A new registrant must submit the online registration by 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 21st calendar day before an election to be eligible to vote in that election.
