SALEM, Ore. -- Secretary of State Bev Clarno wants to ensure all Oregonians displaced by the fires that they will receive their ballot to vote this November.
“The families and communities affected by the devastating wildfires across Oregon are in my thoughts and prayers," said Clarno. "Our team at Secretary of State stands ready to help both in the immediate response and long-term recovery efforts to come."
Residents can go online or send in a paper form to change their address to a temporary mailbox. They can also pick up their mail, including a ballot from the local post office.
If someone's mailbox is destroyed, the local post office will hold their mail until it can be retrieved. It is important to keep in mind that ballots will not be forwarded, if you submit an address change.
Clarno says ballots will start to go out on Oct. 14. For more information visit the Secretary of State website.
