Voltage is an unincorporated community in Harney County, Oregon, United States. It is about 34 miles (55 km) south of Burns, on the south shore of Malheur Lake near the Donner und Blitzen River. Voltage post office was established in 1908 by Walter C. Botsford, the first postmaster, who was interested in electricity and thought that the river could generate enough "voltage" to serve the entire Harney Valley. He had confused voltage with power; a hydropower project was never attempted. The post office closed in 1933. At one time, Voltage had a store and school district; today, however, there is little evidence of a once-thriving community.
