Salem, OR—Oregon voters will soon begin receiving their ballots for the Tuesday, May 18, 2021 special district elections. Oregon voters will find on their ballot races for local school board, utility districts, and other special districts that provide leadership and direction on essential public services.
“There’s an intense focus on elections when we’re working to elect a President, but these local races also have a substantial impact on our everyday lives,” said Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan. “The May 18 election will determine who will sit on school boards, funding through bond measures, and representation on water, fire, and other special districts that provide critical services across the state.”
Eligible voters are all citizens over the age of 18, including those who were formerly incarcerated and/or who have received a felony conviction.
Oregonians have several options for returning ballots for the Tuesday, May 18 election.
