Vote by Mail

Anyone can request a vote by mail ballot.
1.       It’s easy. And who does not like simplicity?
2.       For some reason, voting is like a fire drill–it seems to come on cold days when it will interrupt you from the most important projects, meetings, or dozens of other activities that seem more important. Yet, preparing for a fire drill is important.
3.       The most difficult part of voting by mail is ensuring your address is correct so you receive your ballot.
4.       Along those same lines, mail-in voting allows you more time.
“You can request absentee ballots for all elections for the calendar year in which you are eligible to vote by sending an application to your county election board. Apply on our Absentee Voting Page.
Absentee voting by mail is easy and convenient.
– No lines: Avoid lines at your precinct on Election Day or at your County Election Board during early voting. Mail your ballot in on your schedule.
– Never miss an election: You can sign up to have all your ballots for the year mailed to you so you don’t have to remember to make a trip to the polls.
– Take your time: Absentee ballots are usually mailed more than a month before each election, giving you plenty of time to decide on your choices and mail your ballot back to the County Election Board so it arrives before polls close on Election Day.
– Any registered voter can vote by mail: Oklahoma does not require voters have a reason to request an absentee ballot, although special conditions make it even easier for voters to cast an absentee ballot if they are physically incapacitated, a caretaker for a physically incapacitated person, a nursing home resident or if they are in the military or living overseas.”—Comanche County Election Board
