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. In 21 days 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 that party’s 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.
