Multnomah County Elections encourages voters to stay home, stay safe, and vote by mail. New for 2020 — a stamp is no longer needed to return your ballot. City of Portland voters have until Thursday, August 6, to safely mail back their ballot for the August 11 Special Runoff Election. Voters mailing ballots from outside of the state should do so earlier.

After August 6, voters should use the Official Ballot Drop Sites that are open for this Special Runoff Election. Those Official Ballot Drop sites include 24-Hour Drop Boxes and 24-Hour Book Drop boxes at libraries in Multnomah County. Please note, because this Special Runoff Election is only in the City of Portland, the Fairview and Troutdale Libraries will not be accepting ballots. The Albina Library has moved. To find your nearest Official Ballot Drop Site visit multco.us/dropsites. Ballots must be received at an Official Ballot Drop site by 8:00 PM on Election Day.
