Oklahoma Elections

Local elections matter. In 2021, Oklahoma municipalities and school districts are asking voters to choose between candidates for city councils and school boards. Voters will also decide the fate of bond proposals. Bookmark this page for quick access to NonDoc’s coverage of important Oklahoma races and other election information.

Remember, you can check the Oklahoma Voter Portal to make sure you know of upcoming elections. And don’t forget that you will need to re-request absentee ballots in 2021 if voting by mail is your cup of tea.

If you are looking for results from Oklahoma’s 2020 elections, visit the Oklahoma State Election Board’s official results.
