The Secretary of State is one of three constitutional offices created at statehood. As an independent constitutional officer elected statewide, the Secretary of State answers directly, and solely, to the people of Oregon.
The Secretary of State delivers better results for Oregonians through:
- More effective and efficient service delivery;
- Greater transparency and accountability;
- Using innovation to connect Oregonians to their government.
The Secretary of State is the keeper of The State of Oregon's History, the auditor of public funds and the first stop for Oregon businesses and the State's chief elections officer.
We strive to:
- Engage Oregonians
- Innovate for the Future
- Deliver Results
