Next Monday is the deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is next week, says county election board secretary Ashley Carnes. The County Election Board must receive applications by 5 p.m. on February 20.
“Absentee voting is available to all voters and can be submitted in several ways,” she said. “In Oklahoma, no excuse is needed to vote by absentee ballot, and it’s easy to apply. Voters can submit their application online, in-person, by fax, mail, or email.”
Voters can apply online using the OK Voter Portal at oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp. Applications are available at the County Election Board or can be downloaded at oklahoma.gov/elections.
Carnes reminds voters that only the applicant can submit their own absentee ballot application. It is against the law to submit an absentee ballot application for another person. Voters who submit their application in person at the County Election Board will be asked to provide proof of identity.
