Request your absentee ballot by June 23 for upcoming primary elections

By Kaylee McDaniel / Inside OKC / June 15, 2020

As important primary and special elections approach, Oklahomans have options for exercising their right to vote. Any registered voter in Oklahoma may vote by absentee ballot to avoid the long lines and health concerns that might present themselves on Election Day.

With your name and date of birth, you can request an absentee ballot online using the OK Voter Portal. You can also print an application or learn more about absentee voting at OK.gov/elections. All requests for absentee ballots must be made by 5 p.m. on June 23.

Because of COVID-19, the state enacted new options for absentee voter verification for the June 30 elections. Instead of having your signature notarized or witnessed by two people, you have the option of attaching a copy of your ID to your affidavit envelope instead. Read the instructions for voting by absentee ballot sheet enclosed with your ballot for more information.

The June 30 primary and special elections will include important positions at every level of government. See what races will be on the ballot in Oklahoma, Canadian, Cleveland and Pottawatomie counties.
