April 26, 2022 – Today is the deadline to register to vote in the May 17th election. Today also marks the deadline to change party affiliation ahead of the closed primaries. Voters can register or update their existing registration online at Oregonvotes.gov until 11:59 PM on April 26.
Both the Republican and Democratic parties are holding closed primaries, which means that only party members will be able to vote in those primary contests. All voters, regardless of their party affiliation, will receive ballots with nonpartisan contests and ballot measures.
