Due to a programming error, Democrat and Republican voters in Precinct 46 (NE Bend) were issued an incorrect ballot which included State Representative, 53rd District, instead of the correct 54th District. The error has been corrected. Replacement ballots that include State Representative, 54th District will be mailed later this week. Democrat and Republican voters in Precinct 46 should vote with the replacement ballot that contains State Representative, 54th District contest.
If voters have already mailed the first ballot, it will only be counted if Deschutes County Elections does not receive the replacement ballot. If voters do not return the replacement ballot, all contests on the first ballot will be counted except for State Representative, 53rd District, as the voter is not eligible to vote on that contest.
In order for the replacement ballot to be counted, voters must return it by 8:00 p.m., Election Day, Tuesday, May 15.
Deschutes County apologizes for any inconvenience this error may have caused voters. Voters that have questions may contact Deschutes County Elections at (541) 388-6547.
