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.
Click the play arrow below to view a video about the ways we are still offering plenty of Primary Election information to Multnomah County voters. Even before the pandemic, we knew that we – and voters like you – were facing a challenge. More than twice as many candidates than usual are running. We offer videos of candidate interviews and a Secretary of State debate, and printed and online voters’ guides, in English and Spanish. To learn more, see our Voters’ Guide page and take a look at our video.
During this COVID-19 emergency, voters should be prepared to avoid voting in person. Fortunately we have Vote-by-Mail in Oregon, so you don’t have to stand in line! Please remember to register early or update your registration as soon as you can. The deadline to register to vote is April 28. For more information about registering to vote in Multnomah County, click here.
During the COVID-19 crisis, the League of Women Voters will be providing online information about candidates and measures via Vote411.org and on this website.
We will produce printed voters’ guides and distribute them widely throughout the county. In addition, we will produce and post online video recordings of candidate interviews for a Video Voters’ Guide. Stay tuned!
