Celebrate National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 20.

Tuesday, September 20, 2022 is National Voter Registration Day! First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day has become a nonpartisan national holiday when thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure that our family, friends, and neighbors Make a Plan to VOTE! The first step in the plan is registering to vote! 

The voter registration deadline for the upcoming November General Election is Tuesday, October 18. Register to vote online at oregonvotes.gov/register. Make sure to update your voter registration anytime you move, change your name, or want to change your party affiliation. Now is the time to check that your voter registration has your current residence and mailing address. 

Get Involved!

  • Make sure your family, friends, and neighbors Make a Plan to VOTE! and are registered to vote at their current address.
  • Access our Make a Plan to VOTE! Virtual Voter Registration Kit with rules for organizing a voter registration drive, printable voter registration cards, signs, and brochures.
  • Connect with a local, governmental, or community organization to be part of a National Voter Registration Day event. Events are often posted on our social media channels as we near the date (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter)  

Sign up for Track Your Ballot.

Do you want to know when your ballot has been mailed out? Sign up for Track Your Ballot and get a virtual “I Voted” sticker. Text, email, or voice alerts will tell you when the county elections office has mailed your ballot, and upon return when we have received your ballot. Alerts also indicate whether the ballot has been accepted for counting or whether it requires further action by the voter. Inside the “Accepted Ballot” message, voters will get access to a special Oregon “I Voted” sticker ready to share on social media. Multnomah County voters can sign up by visiting multnomah.ballottrax.net.
