EUGENE, Ore. - It's Election Day in Oregon.

For some of us.

There are no statewide issues on the November 2013 ballot, so not all voters got a ballot for this election.

There are no issues on the ballot in Coos or Douglas counties, for example.

And only Springfield and Junction City school patrons, as well as River Road Park and Recreation District residents, got ballots in Lane County.

In this election, many cities, counties, school districts and other municipal entities are asking voters to weigh in on renewing existing taxes - or adopting new ones.

For example, the City of Albany is asking voters to approve a measure to fund construction of new police and fire department facilities. If approved, the tax would take effect an existing property tax measure expires.

Ballots are due to a drop box by 8 p.m. Tuesday. Check with your county election office for drop box locations. Lane | Linn | Benton | Curry

If you believe you should have received a ballot, contact your county election office before the end of the day.
