Replacement ballots

(1) An elector may obtain a replacement ballot described in ORS 254.470 (Procedures for conducting election by mail). To vote a replacement ballot, the elector must complete and sign a replacement ballot request form. The request for a replacement ballot may be made electronically, by telephone, in writing, in person or by other means designated by the Secretary of State by rule.

(2) The replacement ballot request form shall be mailed or made available to the elector along with the replacement ballot.

(3) Upon receiving a request for a replacement ballot, the county clerk shall:

(a) Verify the registration of the elector and ensure that another ballot has not been returned by the elector;

(b) Note in the list of electors that the elector has requested a replacement ballot;

(c) Mark the return identification envelope clearly so that it may be readily identified as a replacement ballot; and

(d) Issue the replacement ballot by mail or other means.

(4) The completed and signed replacement ballot request form and the voted replacement ballot must be received at the office of the county clerk, a place of deposit designated by the county clerk or any location described in ORS 254.472 (Compartments for marking ballots) or 254.474 (Voting booths for primary and general elections) not later than the end of the period determined under ORS 254.470 (Procedures for conducting election by mail) (1) on the date of the election.

(5) Upon receiving a voted replacement ballot, the county clerk shall verify that a completed and signed replacement ballot request form has been received by the county clerk or is included with the voted replacement ballot. If a request form has been completed and signed by the elector and received by the county clerk, the county clerk shall process the ballot. If the request form is not completed or signed by the elector or received by the county clerk, the county clerk may not process the ballot.
