If you are eligible to vote and go to the Oregon DMV to get a license, permit, or ID card, automatic voter registration is available.
After you visit the DMV, you will get a card and envelope from the Oregon State Elections Office.
With this card, you have three options:
- Do nothing. You will be registered to vote as a nonaffiliated voter (not a member of a political party).
- Choose a political party by returning the card. Joining a political party will allow you to vote in its primary elections.
- Use the card to opt-out and decline to register to vote. After you register, you will receive a ballot and instructions in the mail.
More than 240,000 people have been registered to vote in 2016. Welcome to Oregon’s new voters!
