Voter notification cards may contain error

Multnomah County voters who registered or updated their voter registration in the past month may receive a voter notification card with incorrect address information.

A voter notification card lists precinct and voting districts, and it includes a registration address for voters to verify. That address information may be incorrect. The voter record in the Oregon Centralized Voter Registration System is unaffected and remains correct.

The incorrect information resulted from a data processing error that occurred at the mailing vendor.

Multnomah County Elections is working with the mail vendor to produce corrected notification cards and mail them to the estimated 3,200 affected voters as soon as possible.

Additionally, Multnomah County Elections will send a letter to all affected voters explaining the error. Affected voters should expect to see the corrected notification card and letter on Monday or Tuesday of this week.
