Multnomah County Voters Deadlines

According to the Multnomah County Elections Department, all registered voters in Multnomah County should have received their ballots by May 9 for the upcoming May 21 primary election.

To have your vote counted, ballots must be received by 8:00 p.m., on Tuesday, May 21 at any election office in Oregon or any Official Ballot Drop Site location. If your ballot is postmarked by May 21, it can still be counted.

As a friendly reminder, this year’s primary election ballot will look different. Candidate contests for the city of Portland elected offices will not appear on the May 2024 ballot. These contests will appear on the Nov. 5, 2024, ballot, which will also be the City’s first use of ranked-choice voting.
