Keith Fonsen of Myrtle Creek drops off a voting ballot at the drop-box in front of the Douglas County Courthouse in Roseburg in October.

The deadline to vote in Tuesday’s special election is drawing near, and Douglas County Clerk Dan Loomis warns it’s too late to send in ballots by mail and be sure they’ll arrive on time.

However, ballot drop sites around the county will be open through 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Turnout is up a bit over the same point in the 2019 election, Loomis said in an email.

As of Thursday, 11,444 ballots from 13.71% of the county’s registered voters had been received. That’s 1.51% ahead of participation rates at the same point in the 2019 special districts election.

Earlier this week, the pre-election certification of election tally machines was completed, and a member of each major political party was invited to monitor it.
