Have you voted but not returned your ballot to Lane County Elections?


Lane County Elections recommends that voters mail back their voted ballots to the Elections Office no later than Wednesday, May 15. After that date, Lane County Clerk Cheryl Betschart suggests voters return their ballots to one of the many official ballot drop sites available, or turn them in at the Elections Office at 275 W. 10th Avenue, Eugene.


Voters may drop off their ballots at one of many official drop box locations listed on Page 20-39 of the Lane County Voters’ Pamphlet. Drop boxes are now open and will remain open until 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. A map of drop box locations is also available online.


To be counted, all voted ballots must be received at the Elections Office or in an official drop site by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Postmarks do not qualify ballots.


Betschart shared several important reminders for voters to follow as they get their ballots ready to return: “Please call our office if you have any questions prior to casting your vote. We want to make sure all registered voters can have their votes counted.”


  • Each voter must sign the ballot return identification envelope that lists the voter’s printed name and address.
  • Sign the ballot envelope in the same manner as your most current voter registration card.
