County Office Helps Homeless Vote

LANE COUNTY, Ore. — Most local voters should already have seen their ballots show up in the mail, but how do you vote if you don’t technically have a place to call home?

The Lane County Elections Office says as long as someone is currently registered to vote in the state, that person just needs a physical location as an address and a mailing address.

The addresses of friends, families, and even the elections office itself can be used to fulfill those requirements.

“We want to help get them registered if they are currently active or inactive in Oregon, so they certainly can check with us and we can guide them and help them through the process so they’re not disenfranchised,” said Cheryl Betschart, Lane County Clerk.

The Lane County Elections Office has been utilized in the past as a mailing address.
