Voter Notification CardFrequently Asked Questions about my Voter Notification Card

What is the Voter Notification Card that I just received?

The Voter Notification Card provides you with some of your elected districts that you'll be voting on in future elections.  It also shows your name and residence or mailing address information.  The card also shows your precinct number, which is only used for administrative purposes.

In early April 2022, all registered voters in Multnomah County were mailed a Voter Notification Card due to redistricting of Congressional, State Legislative, Multnomah County Commissioner and Metro Council districts. Voter precincts and/or districts may have changed and the voter notification card provides that information for every registered voter in Multnomah County. 

Is the Voter Notification Card needed to vote?

No. Your ballot will be mailed to you at the address listed on the Voter Notification Card. You do not need to keep the card and can recycle it, or you can keep it for your records.

If you need to make an update to your voter registration you can do so in a couple of ways:

**Updates cannot be made over the phone.

**Please remember that ballots cannot be forwarded, so we need your current address to mail a ballot to you.
