07.13.2023 Dean Rhodes Elections


The Tribe’s Election Board office will open on Monday, July 24, and will be open through Friday, Sept. 8.

Office hours are 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily with lunch from noon to 12:30 p.m.

The office is located in the Tribal Community Center, 9615 Grand Ronde Road, and the phone number is 503-879-2271.

Blank signature verification forms have been placed in a hanging basket outside the Elections Board office door. Completed signature verification forms – with a notarized signature or legible copy of ID, including your signature (driver’s licenses, member ID card, passport, etc.) – need to be mailed to the Election Board for processing. The form will not be processed unless it has been notarized or includes a legible copy of ID and signature attached.

Ballots will be mailed to voters with verified signatures on Wednesday, July 26. Tribal members can submit a verified signature card at any time up to and including Election Day on Saturday, Sept. 9.

The Grand Ronde post office is no longer open to accept ballots on Saturday, Sept. 9. For Tribal members’ convenience, there will be a ballot box in the Governance Center during the election season and also on Election Day there will be a box in the Community Center where ballots can be dropped off.

Ballots will be available, as they have been in the past, for Tribal members who want to vote in person. It is the voter’s responsibility to ensure their ballot is received by the Election Board on Election Day and allow for adequate time for the ballot to reach the Election Board by Sept. 9.
