OREGON Voter ID Information

Registered Oregon voters do not need to show ID at the polls to vote, except for some first-time voters.

Oregon has adopted vote-by-mail for all elections. However, voters may be confused and believe that they cannot vote without ID.  VoteRiders can help with up-to-date resources and free assistance to help you with OR voter ID questions.

For questions about Oregon's voting requirements, call or text VoteRiders’ Voter ID Helpline: 844-338-8743.
