Early voting in Oklahoma starts on November 2. If you plan to vote early, one thing is different this year.
“Early voting starts on Wednesday, that’s new for the state of Oklahoma, it just happened in the 21 legislature they voted to add an additional day,” Julie Dermody, Rogers Co. Election Board.
You can cast your ballot next Wednesday, Nov. 2, through Friday, from 8 in the morning till 6 in the evening. You can also vote early on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“When you come, make sure you have either your voter ID, Oklahoma issued ID or federally issued ID, or tribal ID,” said Dermody.
If you don’t know where to go to cast your ballot, you can visit the Oklahoma Voter Portal.
“There you can put in your last name, first name, birthdate and your sample ballot will come up, you can see all kinds of information. If you requested an absentee, you can track your absentee to make sure when it was sent to you and when we received it back,” explained Dermody.
You also can find your election board, polling place, your voting history, and other upcoming elections.
“As far as absentee ballot requests, it’s the highest we’ve had for a midterm election, for a midterm general election,” Dermody said.
Dermody said voting is the way you can help shape the future for Oklahoma.
“That is your voice, and you know what? Every ballot, every vote counts. Because there are sometimes that these elections come down to just a few votes. Just a few,” Dermody said.
