A suspended Driver’s License is still valid, a revoked Driver’s License is NOT valid. If you do not have a current, valid Oregon DMV Driver’s License/ID, you must provide the last four digits of your Social Security number.

If you do not have a current, valid Oregon DMV Driver’s License/ID or a Social Security number, you must affirm this on the voter registration card, and if you are registering by mail, you must provide a copy of one of the following:

  • Valid photo identification
