Early voting for the Aug. 28 runoff primary election begins Friday at county election boards.

Registered voters who want to avoid the polls or will be out of town for the runoff election may vote in person by absentee ballot Friday, Saturday or Monday.

However, Saturday early voting is available in counties that have only a federal or state race.

Voters taking advantage of the in-person absentee voting must cast their ballots at their county election board from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday or 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday. There is not a statewide runoff race for either political party. Election officials are suggesting voters contact their county election boards before voting to make sure there is an election scheduled in their precinct.

Runoff elections for federal, state or county offices will occur in 41 of the state's 77 counties and 19 counties will have only local elections on the ballot.

Oklahoma has a closed primary election system, meaning only registered voters of a political party may vote in the runoff primary election.
