Where Do We Go From Here?   
by Melissa Fey, Secretary, MCDCC

On May 25th, over 1700 miles from Marion County, George Floyd lost his life at the hands of police brutality. Protests have erupted around the county in an unprecedented fashion. At our Capitol, we have seen over a week of protests including the March For Floyd last Saturday. It was a stunning turn out in the thousands, surely one of the biggest crowds our Capitol has ever seen. While the continued protests are doing their job to put pressure on government officials, there’s plenty more we can do to bring justice and equality to our communities. Changing hearts and minds is a purposeful action and doesn’t happen without effort.   Here is a list of things to read, listen to, donate to, act upon, or watch.
Keep Your Voter Registration Current

You can update your voter registration information, until 8 p.m. on Election Day and still cast a ballot. However, if your registration is updated close to an election, your ballot might have to be issued at the county elections office.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

If you have an Oregon driver license or state ID card, you can update your information entirely online
  1. Go To My Vote.
  2. Enter your name and date of birth. Click Submit

New Voter Registration
A new registrant must submit their online registration by 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 21st calendar day before an election to be eligible to vote in that election.​

MyVote​ will send your registration information to your county election officials, who will update your record. This usually takes a few days.

A name change needs to be updated by completing a new paper registration form.

Hard Copy - Paper Registration

You can find a voter registration card at a post office, library or county elections office. You can also ask your county elections office or the Oregon Elections Division to mail you a card.
