Clerk Kolen reminds Voters of Deadlines
Curry County Clerk Reneé Kolen reminds residents who are new to the State of Oregon the deadline to register to vote in the November 3rd 2020 Presidential Election is October 13th.
Registered voters who have moved or changed their mailing address will need to update their Voter Registration by 8pm Election Day. Oregon Law does not allow the United States Postal Service to forward ballots.
“The easiest way to register to vote or update your voter registration is to go to your trusted source either at the Secretary of State Elections Division at oregonvotes.gov or Renee’ Kolen Curry County Clerk at co.curry.or.us .” Kolen said.
“You can also register by paper form available at your local post office or contact our office at (541) 247-3297 to make arrangements to get you registered or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Voters can also check the status of their registration and track the delivery of their ballot at oregonvotes.gov .” Kolen added.
Ballot packets will be mailed out to registered voters in Curry County on October 14th. Voters who have not received a ballot by October 21st should call the County Clerk’s Office at (541) 247-3297.
Postage is not required to mail a ballot and ballots are due in the County Clerk’s Office or in an Official Drop Box by 8:00 pm on Election Day November 3rd. Postmarks do NOT count in Oregon. Official Drop Boxes are located at the Curry County Courthouse and at Brookings and Port Orford City Halls.
If you choose to mail your ballot it should be mailed by October 27th to ensure it arrives at the County Clerk’s office on time.
The biggest threat we have to elections today continues to be misinformation. Kolen reminds us to always go to a trusted source of election information at the Secretary of State Elections Division at oregonvotes.gov or the Curry County Clerk at co.curry.or.us .
