Ballots Headed To Oregon Mailboxes

Brian Bull

Ballots are being mailed in Oregon starting Wednesday for the May 21 election.

There aren’t any statewide races to decide. But voters in most Oregon communities will decide on school board seats, along with races for community college boards and fire districts.

Voters in some areas will consider tax levies. That includes the Eugene School District, which is asking for approval of a five-year, $91 million operating levy. Lane County voters will also consider a request for $154 million in bonds to build a replacement for the 60-year-old county courthouse.

Ballots can be returned by mail or to a ballot drop box. The deadline to return ballots is 8 p.m. on Election Night.
