Steps for Voting by Mail in Oklahoma
STEP ONE: REQUEST A BALLOT
Request an absentee ballot from the Oklahoma State Election Board using their online application form HERE. You may apply for absentee ballots for one election, for several elections or for all elections in which you are eligible to vote during the calendar year in which the application is submitted.
This MUST be done by 5 p.m. the Wednesday before the election.
STEP TWO: RECEIVE AND FILL OUT YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT
Your county election board must mail out the absentee ballots 40 days before the election. After that first wave, they will be mailed out daily as more requests come in. Fill out your ballot and get it notarized by a notary public.
STEP THREE: RETURN YOUR BALLOT
If your absentee ballot is mailed to you, you must return it to the county election board by mail. An absentee ballot must be received by the county election board before 7 p.m. on election day to be counted. Absentee ballots may also be delivered in-person to your county election board during regular business hours. Ballots delivered by hand must be returned no later than the end of business hours on the day before the election. Find your county election board HERE.
