Local Electon Ballots Mailed

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Vote 2012 is on track. Election ballots are now in the mail.

In Lane County, Board of Elections officials delivered all ballots to the Springfield Mail Processing Center.

However, by law, the ballots could not be processed until midnight. With that being said, some voters may receive their ballots as early as Friday.

While some may be delivered Friday, the bulk should arrive Saturday and Monday.

You can track your election ballot online at www.oregonvotes.gov. There you can find out when it was sent out and when it was received by your county elections office.

But what if you don’t receive a ballot and you’re registered to vote?

“What we are asking voters to do if they have not received their ballot through this coming Tuesday’s mail to certainly give us a call on Wednesday next week,” said Cheryl Betschart, Lane County Clerk.

More ballots will be sent out as elections offices continue to process voter registrations up until Election Day.

Several counties are reporting increases in voters over the last presidential election.

Lane County is at almost 213,000 voters–about 2,000 more voters than 2008. Benton County has 52,500–more than 5,000 voters. Linn County is also up with nearly 64,000 voters this year. But voter totals in Coos County and Douglas County are down.
