Absentee and Early Voting

Can’t make it to the polls on election day? No problem. It’s easy to vote in advance and make sure your vote counts!

Absentee Voting

  • Any registered voter in Oklahoma may vote by absentee ballot. It is not necessary to give a reason for voting absentee.
  • You may apply for absentee ballots for one election, for several elections or for all elections in which you are eligible to vote during the calendar year in which the application is submitted.
  • You may mail your absentee ballot application to the county election board, you may fax it or you may deliver your own application personally to the county election board office. (You may not deliver an application for another person, however.) You may scan your signed application and e-mail it to your county election board. Click here for a list of county election board e-mail addresses.
  • June 20 is the deadline to request an absentee ballot for the June 26 primary.
  • If your absentee ballot is mailed to you, you must return it to the county election board by mail. An absentee ballot must be received by the county election board before 7 p.m. on election day to be counted.

Early Voting

  • Voters may cast an absentee ballot in person at the county election board office from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday before all elections. For state and federal elections, in-person absentee voting also is available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Sample Ballots

The Oklahoma State Election Board and county election boards make sample ballots available in advance of upcoming elections. To obtain sample ballots online, visit the state election board’s voter tool by clicking here. Please note the Independent voters are allowed to vote in the Democratic primary and primary runoff elections. More than one sample ballot may be listed because primary races aren’t the only elections on the primary ballot. All registered voters will have the opportunity to vote on non-partisan judicial races in their area and State Question 788, which will appear on a separate ballot.
