Mike Seals - November 4, 2020 10:17 pm

Statement about Oklahoma’s 2020 General Election from Paul Ziriax, Secretary of the State Election Board:

“I am delighted about the enthusiasm and engagement shown by Oklahoma voters in this election. We saw a surge in voter registrations, set a record for mail absentee ballots and in-person absentee “early” votes, and had heavy turnout on Election Day. Oklahoma voters set a record for the most votes ever cast for President in the history of our state.”

“Considering this was a Presidential General Election conducted during a pandemic, one week after a major ice storm, with a record level of voter participation, it went fairly smoothly. I am very proud of our county election officials, poll workers, and State Election Board staff for their perseverance, professionalism, and dedication to free and fair elections.”
