The Hood River County Elections office put ballots in the mail Friday for the May 19 Special Districts Election.
Voters have until May 19 to return their ballots via mail or to voting locations at the County Administration Building, Sixth and State, or Cascade Locks City Hall.
Voters are reminded to sign their ballot envelopes, but to sign only their own, to ensure ballot validity.
If you do not receive your ballot in the mail by May 3, call County Elections at 541-386-1442.
The elevator at the county building, where Elections is located, is currently out of order and will be for another week or so. Anyone with mobility limitations should park in the county lot on the west side of the building and take the ramp that leads to the third floor. Ballots must be in the hands of the Elections office by 8 p.m. May 19; postmarks to do not count.
The ballot includes seats on every special election district in the county, and features contested races for the Ports of Hood River and Cascade Locks, Hood River County School District, and Hood River County Parks and Recreation District.
