While researching the links for the “How do I check if my vote is recorded,” I test the system to see if I was registered to vote. I have been receiving ballots right along, so I thought everything was ok. I used the Track Your Ballot link to test the system.

When I input my name and birthday, the response was there was no record. At the top of the page was an error message with a link to County Elections Official. I went to the web page and found Marion County’s Clerk Office. I called the Marion County Clerks office at 503-588-5041 or 800-655-5388/TTY 503-588-5610 and was greeted by a wonderful woman who worked with me to correct an error.

It seems my year of birth was incorrect. I was now six years younger than I thought. The lady updated my voters’ registration to the correct year. In an instant, I aged six years, was back on Social Security, gained and lost 10 pounds, my hip was replaced, my cataracts were replaced, my shoulder started working again, and everything is right as rain.

In this day and age, we need to verify our voter registration.
