Important Election Day TipsNov 02, 2020
Polls open across the state tomorrow at 7 a.m. for Election Day voting. Here are some important things to keep in mind:
ELECTION DAY HOURS
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Heavy turnout is expected. Lines tend to be longest before work, during the lunch hour, and after work. New COVID-19 safety protocols may slow down the process.
All voters in line by 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
PROOF OF IDENTITY
Oklahoma law requires every voter who votes in person to show proof of identity before receiving a ballot. While there are three ways to prove your identity, ONLY ONE is required:
1. Valid photo/ID issued by the federal, state, or tribal government (expiration date must be AFTER November 3, 2020).
2. Voter identification card issued by your County Election Board.
3. Sign an affidavit and vote a provisional ballot. If your information on the affidavit matches official voter registration records, the ballot will be counted AFTER Election Day.
It doesn’t matter what you believe about the current COVID-19 pandemic, safety protocols are in effect. Election officials STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Within 300 feet of the ballot box, Oklahoma law prohibits the wearing of clothing, accessories, or having material in public view related to a candidate or issue on the ballot.
