EUGENE, Ore. -- In order to make sure all ballots get counted, Lane County officials are urging voters to return theirs early.

Ballots must be received by Lane County Elections by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Postmarks on mail do not qualify ballots, so those voting by mail should send them with enough time for the post office to process and deliver them before the deadline.

If you are voting via official drop box, ballots can be turned in at any of the 20 official drop boxes throughout the county up until 8 p.m. on Election Day.

“It is incredibly important for voters to be aware of the Election Day deadline,” said Lane County Clerk Cheryl Betschart. “If a voter doesn’t mail their ballot early enough to ensure the Elections Office receives it before the deadline, or fails to get it to an official drop box before 8 p.m. on Nov. 3, their vote cannot be counted.”

The Lane County Elections Office will be open to the public on Oct. 30, Nov. 2, and Nov. 3. Click here for more information.
