You may register to vote in Oregon if:

  1. You are a resident of Oregon.
  2. You are a United States citizen.
  3. You are at least 17 years of age.

Note: If you are 17 years of age, you will not receive a ballot until an election occurs on or after your 18th birthday.

Am I Registered to Vote?

Following this link takes you to a secure site, run by the State of Oregon, which will allow you to verify your current voter registration status.

To register to vote or update your current registration:

  1. New Online Voter Registration.
  2. If you use the fillable pdf form, be sure to print it and sign it.
  3. Mail the form to:
    Douglas County Clerk
    PO Box 10
    Roseburg, OR 97470-0004

Your county elections office will mail you a card to let you know that your registration was received. If you are registering in Oregon for the first time, your completed voter registration form must be postmarked by the 21st day before an election in order to vote in that election.

A voter who is unable, because of the disability, to sign their name should also complete the Signature Stamp Attestation form.

Identification Requirements

New laws require that people must provide identifying information to register to vote. If you have a current, valid Oregon DMV Driver's License/ID, you must provide that number. A suspended Driver's License is still valid, a revoked Driver's License is NOT valid. If you do not have a current, valid Oregon DMV Driver's License/ID, you must provide the last four digits of your Social Security number.

If you do not have a current, valid Oregon DMV Driver's License/ID or a Social Security number, you must affirm this on the voter registration card, and if you are registering by mail, you must provide a copy of one of the following:

  • valid photo identification
  • a paycheck stub
  • a utility bill
  • a bank statement
  • a government document
  • proof of eligibility under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) or the Voting Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act (VAEH)

If you have any questions, be sure to call us at 440-4252.
