Oregon uses an exclusively vote by mail system. Therefore there is no need for absentee balloting.
There is no early voting in Oregon.
The 2013 Oregon State Legislature is considering a bill that would permit automatic voter registration. The process would require the DMV to send information on licensed drivers to the Secretary of State. Those that meet the legal requirements to vote and are not already registered would be added to the system. As Oregon uses a vote by mail system, most residents would then automatically receive a ballot in their mailbox.
