2022


Calendar with Important Election dates

There are four regularly scheduled election dates each year in Oregon: the 2nd Tuesday in March; the 3rd Tuesday in May; the 3rd Tuesday in September; and the 1st Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Beginning in 2022, the 3rd Tuesday in September election date will move to the 4th Tuesday in August. During odd years, the May Special Election is the only election with candidate positions scheduled. During even years, the May Primary and November General are the only elections with candidate positions scheduled. Ballot Measure referrals can be placed on the four scheduled election dates.  A recall election date occurs based on when the recall petition was filed. 

Upcoming elections include the November 2, 2021 Special Election. Scheduled elections in 2022 include the May 17, 2022 Primary and Nov. 8, 2022 General Election.
