The U.S. Postal Service is mailing ballots today for the Jan. 23 special election. Multnomah County voters who do not receive a ballot by Thursday, Jan. 11 should call the county elections office at 503-988-3720.
Additionally, voters can sign up to track ballots with text, email, or voice alerts notifying voters when ballots have been mailed by the county elections office.
