Absentee ballot application deadline is April 1

Henryetta and Beggs voters have until April 1 to apply for absentee ballots for the April 7 municipal election.
County election board secretary Ava Ridgeway said voters may apply in person at her office in the court house or send in Absentee Applications by mail, fax or email.  "The application can be downloaded from the State Election Board web site or picked up in our office," she added.
Completed absentee applications must be in the hands of the County Election Board no later than 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 1 in order for them to be processed and ballots mailed out to voters that day. Voted ballots must be returned by mail, UPS or FedEx not later than 7 p.m. election day to be counted.
Early in-person voting dates are Thursday, April 2 and Friday, April 3, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  All early voting will take place in the Election Board Office at the Okmulgee County Courthouse.
Sample ballots are available in the Election Board office now.
The State Election Board has a new tool at their web site which allows voters to verify their party affiliation, locate their polling location, track their absentee ballot, find early voting hours and contact information. The link for the State’s website is www.ok.gov/elections.
