2024 Elections

Your vote and voice matter.

This year, elections will determine our next President, members of Congress, state legislators and more. Learn about voting in Oregon, the upcoming elections and more below.  

Primary Election Overview

With every election, Oregonians have an opportunity to make their voices heard. The next Oregon statewide election is the May 21, 2024 Primary Election.

Oregon has a closed primary, which means that only voters who are registered with a specific party can vote for the candidates in that party’s primary. ​The winners of these primary contests in May will typically run against one another in the General Election held in November. All registered voters can participate in the General Election.

See additional information about voting in the primaries, meet our endorsed candidates, read about the issues we're advocating for this year and download our 2024 Primary Election Voter Guide below and in eight additional languages here.
