MEDFORD, Ore. -- As Jackson County gets closer to the 2020 election, NewsWatch 12 spoke with the Jackson County Clerk to get an update on what you need to know ahead of Nov. 3.

Ballots will be dropped off at the United States Postal Service in Medford on Friday.

Voters can expect their ballots as early as Saturday, but no later than the end of next week.

If you don't receive one by then, contact the elections office after the end of next week and they'll send you a replacement ballot.

"We're here to get the job done," said Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker. "We want to reassure Jackson County voters that we are on top of this and here to assist all of our voters and make sure that they get their ballots."

The Jackson County Elections Office is asking voters to stop mailing ballots after Oct. 27. because they want to make sure it gets to the office on time.

The office is extending help to victims of the Almeda and Obenchain Fires.

If you lost your ballot in the fire, you can contact the elections office and get it replaced.

You can also update your mailing address if you need to.

"At some point, we need them to reach out to us because we have lots of remedies for them," Walker said. "I do believe there may be people who decide, 'you know what, I've got too much, it's overwhelming right now,' but, we really want them to be able to exercise their right to vote."

If you need to vote in-person, the office has privacy booths set up.

Those booths are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As a reminder, if you want your ballot to count, it must be received by the elections office or placed in an official ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3.

Walker says the office is available to answer any questions you have about your ballot. You can call (541) 774-6148 or email elections@jacksoncounty.org.
