Absentee Voting

You do not need a reason or excuse to vote absentee in Oklahoma—anyone can request an absentee ballot.

See details of absentee voting and download the application here

You may apply for an absentee ballot online, by mail, by email or by letter. Your application for an absentee ballot must be received by your municipal clerk’s office no later than 5 PM the Wednesday before the election. If your absentee ballot was mailed to you, you must submit the completed ballot by mail, and it must be received by the county election board before 7 PM on Election Day.

In-Person Absentee Voting (Early Voting) 

Voters may cast an absentee ballot in-person at the county election board office from 8 AM to 6 PM on the Thursday and Friday before all elections. For state and federal elections, voters may cast in-person absentee ballots on the Saturday before the election between 9 AM and 2 PM as well. In-person absentee voters must fill out and sign an application form when they arrive to vote. You must bring proof of identity to vote early in Oklahoma.

Voter ID Requirements

You must show proof of identity to receive you ballot and vote. There are three methods to prove your identity:

  • Photo Identification: a document issue by the United States government, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government which contains the name and photograph of the person who is voting, as well as an expiration date that is after the election date unless the ID card is valid indefinitely.
  • County Election Board Voter Identification Card: Voters may use the free identification card that is mailed to them when they register to vote, to verify their identity at the polls.
  • Affidavit with Provisional Ballot: If you cannot provide or refuse to provide proof of identity, you may vote with a provisional ballot and prove your identity with a signed affidavit.

Language Access

Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act requires certain jurisdictions to provide in-language voting materials in areas with a significant number of limited English proficient voters. 

Section 208

Section 208 of the Voting Rights Act states that, “Any voter who requires assistance to vote by reason of blindness, disability, or inability to read or write may be given assistance by a person of the voter’s choice, other than the voter’s employer or agent of the employer or office or agent of the voter’s union.” 

It is your right to bring your own interpreter to the polls, if you so choose.
