Voting in Multnomah County is safe and secure.

October 19, 2020

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office will not tolerate voting intimidation or tampering.

Protecting a person’s right to vote is critical to our office. We will prosecute anybody who attempts to intimidate or prevent a person from casting their ballot.

Remember, no one is permitted to inspect your ballot or the return envelope prior to it being cast. You do not need to answer questions about your ballot or how you voted.

If you feel like someone is interfering with your right to cast a ballot, you should call 503-823-3333 (Multnomah County non-emergency) or in an active emergency, call 9-1-1.

Remember, the key election dates:
  • You have until October 27, 2020 to safely mail your ballot for this election
  • Remember, postmarks don’t count in Oregon
  • You can also drop off your ballot at any Official Ballot Drop Site by 8 pm on November 3.
