Bryan Lake drops off his ballot at the Douglas County Courthouse in May 2019. Voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to drop off their ballots at approved locations.

It’s too late to mail in your ballot for Tuesday’s primary election and be sure it arrive in time to be counted.

But you’ve still got until 8 p.m. on Tuesday to deposit it in one of the many ballot drop boxes located around the county.

While some candidates are running unopposed in their primaries, there are several races up this time around.

Republicans can choose from four candidates competing for the chance to run against Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley in November. Democrats can choose from two candidates vying for the opportunity to challenge Republican state Sen. Dallas Heard in November.

And voters from both parties have decisions to make over who to nominate for the Congressional District 4 seat currently held by Rep. Peter DeFazio.

Voters in Glendale and Roseburg have school bond requests to consider, and Canyonville voters get to decide whether to join the Oregon State University Extension Service District. Don’t forget to check the back side of your ballot sheet, where you’ll find these measures.

And remember to sign your envelope.
