MEDFORD, Ore. — For those displaced by local fires heading into the 2020 election, the Jackson County Elections Office says it is working with the Oregon Secretary of State to develop a plan to be released this week.
In the meantime, here's what Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker recommends — go to Oregonvotes.gov and click "Register to Vote." You can update your information there.
It's recommended that you leave your residence address for now, but change your mailing address to a reliable place where you can pick up your mail — ideally where you anticipate staying come November. Your ballot will go to that temporary mailing address.
If you are not comfortable making those changes online, or if you lost your ID, call the Jackson County Elections Office and they can email or mail you a voter registration card. You can also visit the Elections office on W Main Street in Medford from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Starting October 5, you can go to the Elections office, pick up a ballot, then return it once you've filled it out.
If you have any questions, you can call the Elections office at (541) 774-6148.
