SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Ballots for the 2020 election began to be mailed to Oregonians last week, and so far more than 88,000 people have cast their votes, following suit with the nationwide early voting trends.
By comparison, at this time during the 2016 presidential election 12,591 ballots were returned in Oregon. In 2012 it was less than 10,000.
About 3% of registered voters in Oregon have returned their ballots, according to the Elections Division of the Secretary of State. During the last two presidential elections, between 80% and 82% of registered voters in Oregon have returned their ballots.
Oregonians still have 15 days to return their ballots.
