Ballots arriving this week

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, and if mailed, must be postmarked by that date to be counted, should they arrive up to a week late.

The county also has ballot drop boxes in every city in the county. A list of locations is available at

Most are located at city hall, but the Amity box is located in the library parking lot on Trade Street, and the Carlton box is in the parking lot of the American Legion Hall on Main Street. Both McMinnville and Newberg have multiple drop box locations. Drop boxes are open 24 hours a day, every day.

Ballots are postage-paid and information contained gives specific instructions for marking ballots and signing the cover envelopes to ensure timely validation.

Registered voters who have not received their ballots by Tuesday may call the Clerk’s office at 503-434-7518 or email



3 reasons you should NOT vote for Lindsay B. for county commissioner:
1. Lindsay's campaign is funded by the George Family, owners of one of the largest hazelnut processing companies in the country. Nothing wrong with that. Where it becomes very, very wrong is when she represents only the big money that helped get her get elected and blatantly ignores the wishes of the citizen majority.
2. Here's one example of how Lindsay serves her wealthy farmer campaign supporters and ignores pure and simple betterment for citizens: In 2020 Lindsay killed the Yamhelas Westsider Trail, even though construction had already begun and it meant returning hefty private donations and a $1.5 million grant to the state. She killed it because her farmer supporters are against having regular people (ugh!) sully "their" lovely county. She killed it even though an online petition in June of 2021 gathered more than 3,200 signatures in favor of the trail.
3. Lindsay appointed six candidates with jaw-dropping conflicts of and lack of qualifications to the county parks advisory board. One of them is her husband. One of them is Celine McCarthy. McCarthy and her husband, Greg, who was convicted in federal court last year of financial fraud, were among the largest campaign finance donors to Lindsay.
4. There are many more examples of this politician's wily undertakings. You'll find them in Mac's News-Register newspaper. Keep informed. Everybody rise up and vote for Bubba King.
