The United States Postal Service (USPS) recently informed the Multnomah County Elections Division that a USPS blue mail collection box was stolen on Wednesday, May 4, 2022. The USPS box was located at S.E. Reed College Place and S.E. Woodstock Boulevard in Southeast Portland’s Eastmoreland neighborhood.
The Postal Service confirmed all mail was removed from the box on May 4, 2022 at 11:35 AM. Any voter who used this USPS mail collection box to mail their ballot on May 4, after that time, should immediately contact Multnomah County Elections at 503-988-VOTE (8683) to check the status of their ballot.
Any voter whose ballot was not received at the Elections office may still request a replacement ballot at multco.us/orderahead immediately. You can also contact Multnomah County Elections at 503-988-VOTE (8683) to request a replacement ballot. Multnomah County Elections is offering extended hours leading up to the election:
Monday, May 16
8 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Election Day, Tuesday, May 17
7 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Voters can also sign up to track their ballot at multco.us/trackyourballot. The Track Your Ballot service lets voters know when their ballot has been sent, received and accepted by the Elections Division.
At least one voter, who used the Eastmoreland mailbox that was reported stolen, alerted the County after they didn’t hear from Track Your Ballot one week after they dropped the ballot there. Elections staff confirmed the ballot had not reached the Elections Division and quickly issued a replacement ballot.
