Voting Guides

The League of Women Voters of Portland prepares nonpartisan information for every local and statewide election. Information about each election is posted on a special page on this website devoted to just that election. This page connects to the current election a short time before ballots are mailed. Usually ballots are mailed two and a half weeks before an election.

The following resources are expected to be available by the second half of April 2024.
