Election resources, information for voters

The libraries of the Pioneer Library System will provide photocopy service of identification for absentee ballot voters in the upcoming November 3 general election at no charge.

Photocopies of a valid form of identification will be used to verify ballots, and the ID copy must be mailed along with the absentee ballot by the voter. Libraries are among multiple community organizations will be allowing voters to make these copies of their identification at no charge.

Ballots do not need to be notarized, per special voting provisions that are part of an executive order signed by Gov. Kevin Stitt. These provisions were put in place as part of safety measures during the continuing coronavirus pandemic.  

The absentee ballot itself may be obtained online from the Oklahoma State Election Board. The form may be downloaded or a voter may fill out a request for a form to be mailed.

The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 27. Instructions for returning the ballot are included with it, and voters are encouraged to mail their ballot as soon as possible so it can be counted in a timely manner. As an added service, libraries will be offering the sale of postage stamps to customers to mail their absentee ballot.
