Voters with disabilities can request help with voting from a friend, family member or someone else they know.  If needed, voters can also call and request voting and elections-related help from Multnomah County Elections. Elections Voter Assistance Teams can help a voter in their home, at the facility they live in, or at an elections service location in SE Portland or Gresham. This help is always free of charge. Legally, employers or union representatives cannot provide assistance.

Voters with limited English proficiency can also request assistance. Multnomah County Elections provides an interpreter, free of charge to anyone who needs help in voting or elections processes in a language other than English. Telephone interpretation is available in any language and there are bilingual elections staff.

Multnomah County Elections assists voters with disabilities or voters who need help in their native language.

Voters needing assistance can go online, call, email, or visit a Multnomah County Elections location for help in any step in voting including: signing up to vote, marking or reading the ballot, updating voter registration information, understanding elections rules and steps in voting, or any other elections-related help.

Multnomah County Elections reminds voters that April 24 is the voter registration deadline and the party choice deadline for the May 15 Primary Election. All eligible voters in Multnomah County will receive a ballot in the last week of April.
