Information for Displaced Voters in Oregon

Have you been displaced by the numerous wildfires around the state?

Information on how to obtain your ballot so that you can vote is available here at the Oregon Secretary of State's website.

Register to Vote

Are you registered to vote?  Do you want to change your party, your address, your name?

Voter registration forms are available at all county public libraries and at the county Courthouse in Coquille.  City Halls and post offices also carry voter registration forms.  A voter registration form can also be found online at the Oregon Secretary of State's website.  The deadline for registering to vote in the November election is October 13th.

2020 Elections in Oregon with Mail-in Ballots  &  Results

Especially during these extraordinary circumstances with restrictions on public gatherings and our public libraries only open some days, Oregon is most fortunate to have a mail-in ballot system already in place.

Up-to-date 2020 Election information will be available here as our Virtual Debates and Interviews unfold.  See below for more details.  Information on election results for the state as well as each county after the election in November will be available to view here.

LWVCC Shares Links to Candidate Interviews & Debates

During this time of social distancing and restrictions on public gatherings, the LWVCC will again employ different methods to provide impartial information to voters prior to the November general Election.  Instead of live public Candidate Debate forums, the League will offer recorded interviews through Zoom, and video recorded debates (when possible) without an audience. 

These have been scheduled and will be available for viewing as soon as possible after the recording dates.  When the recordings are available you will be able to click on each debate to view.  North Bend Mayor Debate - Oct. 14 & OR State Senate Debate & House of Representative Debate both on Oct. 15.  Interviews with candidates for the Coos Bay and North Bend City Councils are being scheduled for early October.  When the recorded interviews are available you will be able to click on each city above to view.

Vote 411 - Election Info You Need

When elections are held in Oregon there can be 57 races statewide, almost all of them can contain ballot measures, races for candidates and several races for special district boards.  All counties have a link to Vote411.org.  As always, there are many other resources available on Vote411: voter registration links, important dates, as well as where to find ballot drop boxes and more.

Oregon races can now be followed live on the newly redesigned vote411.org.   Or you can use the widget below to look up the  ballot for your area.  Ballots in Coos County will be mailed out on the 14th of October.
