Early voting resumes Monday
Early voting for the general election resumes Monday at county election boards. Registered voters who want to avoid the polls or will be out of town Tuesday may vote in person from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday. Voters mark ballots in a private voting booth and put the marked ballot in a voting device, much like voting at a precinct polling place. Voting more than once is a felony, so voters who vote early or with an absentee ballot cannot vote again at their precinct polling place on Election Day.
Voter ID IS required at polls
Election officials are reminding voters that Oklahoma has a proof of identity law, which requires voters to show voter identification. Voters may provide a valid, unexpired government-issued photo identification, such as a driver's license or show the voter identification card issued by the county election board. Voters without identification may sign an affidavit and vote a provisional ballot; election officials will check registration records, and if the voter is found to be registered, the vote will be included in the final, official tally later in the week.
