Deadline approaching to apply for absentee ballots

Beverly Bryant - March 18, 2019 2:06 pm

Less than a week remains for registered voters in Kay County to apply for absentee ballots to be mailed to them for the General Election, County Election Board Secretary Cheryl Howard said today.

Applications for absentee ballots must be in the hands of the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, to be processed.

Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Howard said. Absentee voters may apply in person at the County Election Board office or they may send their applications by mail, or fax or online application at www.elections.ok.gov

Voters also may apply for absentee ballots for the following reasons:

  • Registered voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may apply for absentee ballots.
  • Registered voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may apply.
  • Military personnel, residents of Kay County living overseas and the spouses and dependents of each group are entitled to vote without being registered. They may apply by mail, e-mail, fax or online application.

For more information on absentee voting, contact the County Election Board at 201 S. Main, Newkirk or call (580) 362-2130. The County Election Board’s fax number is (580) 362-1100.

Information on absentee voting in Oklahoma also may be found on the Internet at www.elections.ok.gov.
