No Ballot? No Problem! If Registered in Oregon, You Can Still Get A Ballot from the County Clerk

You can still vote, even if you haven't received your ballot by mail. This is how.

Posted By on Fri, Oct 26, 2012 at 7:30 PM

If, like me, you haven't yet received your ballot by mail, don't stress.

YOU CAN STILL VOTE. You probably moved and didn't update your address at the County Clerk's office.

Getting a a replacement ballot is easy if you follow the simple steps below. I just got one and cast my vote, all in less than 30 minutes. Be sure to bring your our Oregon driver's license and Our Crack Election Guide.

Here's what to do.

Step 1:

Go here, with your OR driver's license in hand. Inside the Deschutes Services Building you'll find the County Clerk's office—the folks you want to see. They're upstairs. The address is 1300 NW Wall St., but the building is actually on Hill and Lafayette.

Step 2:


Go upstairs and through these doors.

Step 3: 

These nice ladies are very helpful. They will have you fill out a simple form and ask to see your OR drivers license (you did bring that, right?) then they'll give you a new ballot.

Step 4: 

This is the simple form. It takes 45 seconds to fill out. Hand it to the clerk and they give you a ballot!

Step 5: 

Using your handy Source endorsement guide, fill out your ballot. 

Step 6: 

Submit your ballot! Don't forget to sign it. There's a drop box in the Clerk's office and there will soon be a little drop-off kiosk on Wall St. You can also mail your ballot, but this seemed easier since I was standing right in front of this box. Done!

Call the County Clerk at 541-388-6546 if you have any other ballot/election-related questions. Their website is deschutes.org/Clerks.
