Last week I talked about the how serving in the National Health Service Corps helped set me on a career of public service. And as public employees, we all do our part every day to make our state a better place.
That's why I want to remind everyone that time is running out to register to vote in the upcoming November election.
The deadline is October 16. You can register online until 11:59 p.m. that day at oregonvotes.gov or until 5 p.m. in person at your local county elections office. You can find your local county elections office here.
I urge you not to wait until the last minute to register. Voting is one of the most important rights we have and no one should miss a chance to make their vote count.
