Stop, drop and vote

EUGENE, Ore. - After Friday, it's too late to mail back your ballot for the November 5 election.

That means you have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to drop off your ballot in person.

But because only voters in Springfield and Junction City school districts and the River Road Park and Recreation District got ballots, not all ballot drop box locations will be available.

The following sites are open:

  • Lane County Elections, 275 W 10th Ave 97401
  • River Road Park & Recreation Center, 1400 Lake Dr 97404
  • Junction City Public Library, 726 Greenwood St 97448
  • City of Springfield, Between 5th & 6th St 97477
  • Splash! At Lively Park, 6100 Thurston Rd 97478

Voters in Springfield face a $62.5 million school bond measure. Springfield School District proposes replacing Hamlin Middle School and other improvements.

A $32.4 million bond for Junction City School District proposes to replace Laurel Elementary. That may require acquiring land, according to the bond.

Residents in the River Road Park and Recreation District are being asked to renew an existing 5-year bond at 47 cents per $1,000 of assessed taxable value.

People who own a typical property in the district pay a little under $6 per month for the Park District's services.

Other North Eugene residents can use the services.

"Out-of-district residents pay a higher fee for most activities to compensate for not paying park district taxes," the park district says on its website.

The bond will raise an estimated $250,000 per year over 5 years to provide park district services in the areas of North Eugene that are not incorporated into the City of Eugene.
