Absentee Ballot Voters Need To Apply Now

Voters in Sequoyah County who want to have absentee ballots mailed to them for the Tuesday, Feb- ruary 11, 2014 City of Sallisaw and Annual School Election should apply now, according to Sequoyah County Election Board Secretary Cindy Osborn.  Although the County Election Board can accept ap- plications for absentee ballots until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, Osborn urges voters who want to vote by absentee ballot to apply early.

Absentee  ballot application forms are available at the County Election Board office located at 110 E. Creek Ave. Sallisaw, OK 74955.

Voters can activate some special conditions that make it easier for them to use absentee ballots.  The reasons are:
   Voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may vote absentee.  They may apply by mail or by fax.

   Voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may vote absentee.

   Military personnel and residents of the county living oversees and the spouses and dependents of each group are eligible to vote absentee without being registered.
