If you wish to vote in the June 26 primary election, then June 1 is the last day for the Oklahoma State Election Board to receive your voter registration application.
The June 26 primary election will feature Democratic and Republican primaries as well as State Question 788, the medical marijuana petition. Voters registered as Independents will be allowed to vote in the Democratic primary.
If you are under 18 years old but will turn 18 before the June 26 primary, you also have until June 1 to register to vote.
Check status, fill out forms online, but submit via snail mail, in person
If you think you’re registered to vote but would like to check your registration status or request a voter ID card, use the Oklahoma State Election Board online voter tool. You can also use the link to find your polling place and view a sample ballot.
You can find copies of the voter registration form here. You can also use the form to:
- Change your address for voter registration within Oklahoma
- Change your name
- Change your political party
- Change your mailing address
Any tag agency and most libraries and post offices can also give you an application.
Oklahoma will offer online voter registration in 2020. Until then, voter registration applications must be mailed or hand-delivered to:
Oklahoma State Election Board
P.O. BOX 528800
Oklahoma City, OK 73152-8800
Avoid the lines: Absentee ballots available
In Oklahoma, voters do not need to provide a reason to receive an absentee ballot. If you’ll be out of state on election day, can’t get off work or don’t want to deal with the lines at the polling stations, then you can fill out an absentee ballot.
You can apply for an absentee ballot online, which the state will mail to you. The deadline to request an absentee ballot is the Wednesday before the election, June 20. You can also print one out yourself here. To ensure your ballot is counted, you must mail it back to the election board so it arrives before 7 p.m. on election day.
(Correction: This post was updated at 11 a.m. Friday, May 25, to note June 1 as the deadline to register to vote.)
