The League of Women Voters has prepared reliable nonpartisan voting resources for the 2022 Primary Election. Look on the May 17 Primary Election page for information about candidates on your ballot. Gresham voters will also find information on a ballot measure.
The last day to register to vote or to change your party affiliation was Tuesday, April 26. Only voters registered as Republicans or Democrats can vote on the candidates running in their party’s primaries. All registered voters can vote on nonpartisan races in their election districts.
NOTE THAT CANDIDATES RUNNING AS MINOR PARTY OR NONALIGNED CANDIDATES FOR US SENATE, CONGRESS, OREGON GOVERNOR AND OREGON LEGISLATURE ARE NOT ON PRIMARY ELECTION BALLOTS. VOTERS WILL VOTE ON THEM IN THE GENERAL ELECTION.
