OSU community members,

If you are registered to vote in the United States, please exercise your right to vote in the November 3 general election. In order to be counted, your ballot must be deposited in an official ballot drop site no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3.

All Oregon ballots now include pre-paid postage. This means that every mailbox is a ballot drop box, and it is not necessary to post a stamp on your ballot when delivering it by mail. If you are mailing your ballot, please note that postmark dates do not count toward the election deadline. In order to ensure that your ballot is received in time, it is recommended that you mail it no later than tomorrow, Tuesday, October 27. 

The Corvallis campus ballot drop box has been relocated from the Valley Library to ensure 24-hour drive up access. The ballot drop box is now located at the corner of Ralph Miller Lane and 26th St., next to Gill Coliseum. There are several other ballot drop boxes throughout Benton County that are shared on the county’s election website.

The OSU-Cascades Campus is serviced by the ballot drop box at 1000 SW Bradbury Way, across from the Park & Rec Pavilion. For other ballot drop sites in Deschutes County, please see their county’s election website.

For other official ballot drop sites throughout Oregon visit the Secretary of State’s website.

Note: On election day, all official ballot drop sites will be open until 8 p.m.

If you are registered to vote and have not received your ballot, contact your county elections office to check on your voting status:

You can also check the status of your ballot at My Vote.

If your ballot is from another county, you may drop it off at any official county ballot box, as long as you do so no later than 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3. The county receiving the ballot will route it to your home county for counting.

More information for student voters can be found here.
