LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Independent Patrick Starnes dropped out of the governor's race on Tuesday, but some Oregonians have already voted for him.

Elections officials said if you've already sent in your ballot, you can't request a new one.

However, if you still have your ballot and it is filled in, you can cross out his name and vote for another candidate.

After dropping out, Starnes endorsed Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, who is facing Republican challenger Knute Buehler.

The deadline to vote is 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6. If you plan to vote, you must drop off your ballot at a designated ballot drop site or your county's election office. You cannot mail in your ballot at this time.
