Early Voting Begins Today!

Early voting for the June 28th primary elections begins today! In-person absentee locations will be open Thursday, June 23rd and Friday, June 24th from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. “Early voting” will also be available Saturday, June 25th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

As Oklahoma holds closed primaries, you must be a registered member of a political party in order to vote in that party’s primary election. However, the Democratic party has its primary election open to registered independents for the 2022-2023 election year. Independents who wish to vote in the Democratic primary must request a Democratic ballot upon checking in at their voting location. Voters registered as Independent or Libertarian are also eligible to vote in any nonpartisan elections on the ballot.

Each county has at least one “early voting site”, and a list of these sites can be found here on the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website. Votes must be cast in the county you are registered to vote in.

Sample ballots are available for download in the OK Voter Portal or at your County Election Board office. (Remember, some voting districts may have changed due to statutory redistricting.) The election list can be found on the State Election Board website.

Be prepared to provide a valid proof of identity when you check in at your voting location.

Voters with questions should contact their County Election Board or the State Election Board.
