Oklahoma State Election Board Press Release

Early voting begins today for voters in all 77 counties! Early voting is available Thursday, June 25 and Friday, June 26 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, June 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Early voting takes place at county election boards, although some counties may have an alternate site or additional site. For locations, visit our website at https://www.ok.gov/elections/Early_Voting.html.

There is something on the ballot for every Oklahoma voter. All voters are eligible to vote on State Question 802. You will find more information at https://www.ok.gov/elections/Election_Info/State_Question_info.html. Additionally, some voters may have municipal, school board, county, or other elections on the ballot. (Many of these elections were moved to the June ballot after the elections were postponed in April due to the COVID-19 emergency.) State and federal primary elections are also underway. 

Oklahoma is a closed primary state. However, recognized parties may choose to open their primaries to Independent voters by notifying the Secretary of the State Election Board. The Democratic Party has opened its primaries to Independents for the 2020 and 2021 election years. Republicans and Libertarians have chosen to keep their primaries closed.

If you are an Independent voter and would like to vote a Democratic primary ballot, please notify your county election official or poll worker when you check in.

Voters can view a sample ballot or find their polling place for Election Day using the OK Voter Portal at https://www.ok.gov/elections/OVP.html. A list of elections is available at https://www.ok.gov/elections/support/electionlist.htm.

If you have questions, please contact your County Election Board or the State Election Board at (405) 521-2391.
