BEND, OR -- Voters have just a few more days to return ballots in time for Tuesday’s Primary.
It’s too late to mail it, so you must get it into a drop site. "We’ve got a new drop site on the west side of Bend. It’s in the Old Mill District above the cinemas, next to the Hilton Garden Inn. It’s in the parking lot on Bluff Drive," says Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship. "And, remember to sign the ballot. We’ve seen a lot of people getting excited about getting their ballots in and forgetting to sign. So, be sure to sign them and get them into a drop site; thank you very much."

With Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s meeting with GOP leadership, Thursday, and his growing number of delegates, some Oregon voters have complained that their primary ballot won’t matter. But, Blankenship says registered Republicans are not required to vote for the front-runner. "Three candidates filed, three candidates are on the ballot; and so you should make your voice heard."
Ballots must be signed, and in to an official drop site by 8 p.m., Tuesday, to be counted.
