The 2018 Oregon primary is May 15.

Voters have until April 24 to register to vote. Ballots go out in the mail April 26.

Ballots are due back to a official drop box by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Postmarks do not count in Oregon's vote by mail system.

Oregon has closed primaries. Only voters registered as Democrats can vote in the Democratic primary; only voters registered as Republicans can vote in the Republican primary.

Non-affiliated voters and voters registered with one of Oregon's other political parties will not see Democrats or Republicans on their ballots unless they change their registration by Tuesday night.

Non-affiliated voters may opt to vote in the Independent Party primary by filling out a form.
