OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The League of Women Voters of Oklahoma and two voters who are at high risk of contracting the coronavirus are suing the state to make it easier for residents to cast absentee ballots by mail.

The lawsuit was filed on Thursday with the Oklahoma Supreme Court. The plaintiffs include an emergency room nurse in Oklahoma City and a 68-year-old cancer survivor with asthma, who wish to cast absentee ballots by mail. They want the court to allow voters to submit a signed statement with their ballots, rather than requiring an affidavit signed by a notary public.
