PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The primary election day for Oregon is just days away, and whether you’re a first-time voter or a seasoned voting veteran, there’s still lots to do ahead of Tuesday, May 17.

Oregon has been voting by mail for more than two decades, and while it’s too late to sign up to vote, if a ballot has been delivered to your home, there are new considerations to make about delivering your vote — in addition to filling out the ballot.

What’s on the ballot?

This is a primary, which means if you’re a registered Republican or Democrat, you can choose to vote in a party-affiliate race. However, if you’re an unaffiliated voter, you can still fill out a ballot.

Here are the party-registered-only races:

  • Oregon gubernatorial primaries
  • U.S. Congressional primaries

Who is on your ballot for U.S. House of Representatives will depend on where you live in Oregon. Voters will also be casting ballots for local representatives in the Oregon Legislature.

There are also a few local measures based on your location.

Does Oregon have runoff elections?

It depends.

Essentially, if an elected position is considered partisan, then there will not be a runoff election. However, if an elected position is considered non-partisan, then it is eligible for a runoff election, which will take place during November’s general election.

Meet the candidates

There are also state legislative primary races across Oregon. Be sure to check your local voters’ pamphlet sent to your home alongside your ballot, or click here for the online guide.
