Lincoln County May 2018 Primary Election

Lincoln County May 2018 Primary Election

For absentee voters who vote by mail, the completed/voted absentee ballot must be received by the Department of Voter Registration and Elections by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, June 12, 2018, in order to be counted.

Voters are casting ballots in races for governor, Congress, state senator, state representative and city and county positions.

Voters still have plenty of time to get out there and hit the polls. The response is either a voter identification card listing the new voter's precinct number and polling place location or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved.

Voter turnout in Whitley County's Primary Election was 26 percent, which is 4,626 voters, in addition to the 1,160 early votes that came in.

Voters not already registered to vote in the November 6 General Election can begin registering on May 22.

If you haven't registered yet, take two minutes and register to vote here.


The June 5, 2018, Statewide Direct Primary is only weeks away, and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla is urging citizens to register to vote.

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday. Call Ada County Elections at 208-287-6860 or Canyon County Elections at 208-454-7562to confirm your polling place.

As of 9 a.m. Monday, about 19 percent had turned in their ballots, compared with the previous low of 25 percent the Monday before the 2014 primary. Clackamas County had a turnout of 28.1 percent. The group said it received some reports of voters receiving incorrect ballots and having their registration unexpectedly changed.

Orange County's election budget dwarfs all others with Barrow overseeing a year-round Election Administration office and a full-time staff mandated by the state and offering a variety of election services to the smaller governments.

"We want to remind people to just find that envelope".
