Register to vote this summer!

If you want to fight the Trump agenda, the most basic and important thing you can do is vote in the November general election. To do that, you need to register to vote! The deadline to register is Oct 16, 2018. You can register to vote in Oregon if you are at least 16 years old, although ballots will only be sent to you if you are at least 18. If you have moved recently, you should update your voter registration with your new address.
