City Council Debates on Neighborhood Issues

Four of the seven positions on Bend City Council are on the ballot this November. Two of those races will not have an incumbent running.

The Old Farm District Neighborhood Association does not issue endorsements, but we want you to have the best information available when reviewing your ballot.

Our partners are hosting two candidate forums focused exclusively on neighborhood issues.

More local campaign events

This election season is different thanks to COVID-19, but there are still plenty of ways for you to get to know the candidates.

Visit their websites for more campaign events or other ways to be involved.

In addition to the candidate forums above, there are several more debates and candidate appearances. You can find all the debates in our local area listed here.

Ballots go in the mail October 14th!

Ballots are now postage paid in Oregon – meaning you don’t need a stamp!

Due to issues with the Postal Service, the County Clerk recommends mailing your ballot at least one week before Election Day or using a drop box instead.

Ballots must be received by 8pm on November 3rd. Postmarks do not count!
