The deadline to request absentee ballots by mail for the February 14 elections is approaching. Applications must be received by the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. Monday, January 30.

LeFlore County Election Board Secretary, Sharon Steele, says absentee voting is available to all voters and can be submitted several ways.

"In Oklahoma, no excuse is needed to vote by absentee ballot, and it's easy to apply! Voters can submit their application online, in-person, by fax, mail, or even email."

Voters can apply online using the OK Voter Portal at oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp. Applications are also available at the County Election Board or can be downloaded at oklahoma.gov/elections.

Steele reminds voters that only the applicant can submit his or her own absentee ballot application. It is against the law to submit an absentee ballot application for another person. Voters who submit their application in-person at the County Election Board will be asked to provide proof of identity.

Voters with questions about absentee voting should contact the County Election Board at 918-647-3701.

The LeFlore County Election Board is located at 103 N. Church St., Poteau and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
