Save a stamp: drop off your ballot at a Washington County ballot box

Washington County elections officials are encouraging voters to mail or drop off their ballots as soon as possible this election season so that all ballots are processed in a timely manner.

Voters should have received their ballots by mail over the recent weekend. Information about vote-by-mail, voter eligibility and other election matters may be found at the Washington County Elections Office website or by calling 503-846-5800.

Voters will have until May 11 to send their completed ballots in appropriately signed envelopes with a postmark from the U.S. Postal Service. After this date, completed ballots should be dropped off at official collection sites in order to meet the election's 8 p.m. deadline on May 16.

Many ballot drop sites are inside or outside of WCCLS libraries. Check the list to find one near you!
