Elections Voter Assistance Teams can help voters in their homes, at the facility they live in, or at an elections service location in SE Portland or Gresham.
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 free of charge.
Legally, employers or union representatives cannot provide assistance. Voters with limited English proficiency can also request assistance. The Elections Division can provide 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.
Voters needing assistance can go online, call, email, or visit a Multnomah County Elections location for help with any part of the voting process 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. The voter registration deadline for the May 21 Special District Election is April 30.
