What is Oregon Motor Voter?



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:


Check 2

  • Do nothing. You will be registered to vote as a nonaffiliated voter (not a member of a political party).


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.
