Hood River County Elections Office mailed ballots to county voters Wednesday for the May 16 Special Districts Election.
Ballots should arrive in the mail by this weekend.
The ballot, depending on your place of residence, lists candidates for dozens of positions including Port of Hood River and Port of Cascade Locks commissions, Hood River County School District Board, and the boards of Hood River Library District, Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation District and Hood River Transportation District, along with many local fire, water, and sanitation districts.
Remember to sign the envelope for your ballot only, and return by mail or at drop-off locations at Sixth and State and Cascade Locks City Hall (deadline is 8 p.m. May 16; postmarks do not count).
Voters who have not received ballots by May 3 may call County Elections at 541-386-1442.
Several hundred voters will receive duplicate ballots — and should keep the one with a green sticker and discard the other. The green-sticker ballots are those that had changes prior to the county sending its elector list to its out-of-county mailing service.
