Voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, August 23 to decide a number of issues. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

LeFlore County Election Board Secretary, Sharon Steele, recommends that voters with questions about their eligibility of polling place call before Election Day.

"We provide a number of additional services to voters on Election Day, so it can get very busy. If you have any questions, we strongly suggest you call or come by the week before Election Day if possible. If you find that you do have a question on Election Day, however, don't hestitate to call."

Steele says the State Election Board's OK Voter Portal is the easiest way for voters to verify their registration or locate their polling place. The OK Voter Portal can be found at oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp.

The LeFlore County Election Board reminds voters to bring a current federal or Oklahoma state-issued photo ID, or federally-recognized tribal ID to their polling place. An official Voter Identification Card can also be used as proof of identity. If you forget your ID, you may still cast a provisional ballot by signing an affidavit. Provisional ballots will be verified and counted after Election Day and before the election is certified.

For questions, please contact the County Election Board at 918-647-3701 or leflorecounty@elections.ok.gov. The County Election Board is located at 103 N. Church Street in Poteau. The office hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday-Friday.
