Oregon Student Voter Info

Students who lived in Oregon before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Oregon voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Oregon address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students who attend school in Oregon may register and vote at their school address if they reside in and attend school in Oregon and have the intent to make Oregon their current home, regardless of their future plans. You do not have to intend to remain in Oregon after graduation. Your residence for voting should be your fixed home, the place you regularly come back to after being away.

Oregon Ex-Offender Voter Info

Individuals incarcerated for a felony conviction are ineligible to vote. Voting rights are automatically restored upon release from prison, and people on parole or probation can vote. Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.
