Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday for the Presidential Preferential Primary Election, said Cindy Osborn, Sequoyah County Election Board secretary.
Osborn offered tips on how to make your vote count.
She said a valid ballot marking – a filled-in box in either blue or black ink – is important. If voters make mistakes marking their ballots, Osborn said they should not try to correct the error. Instead a voter should return the spoiled ballot to precinct officials who will destroy it and issue a new ballot to the voter.
Obsorn urged voters to take their voter identification cards with them to the polls.
“Your voter ID card, issued by the county election board, can help precinct officials find your name in the Precinct Registry, and it may help them resolve the problem if you are not listed in the registry for some reason,” Osborn explained.
Voters may also bring an unexpired photo ID card issued by the U.S. government, the state of Oklahoma or a federally-recognized tribal government.
Voters without ID or whose names are not found in the Precinct Registry, or voters who disagree with the information in the registry, may also cast a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot is sealed in a special envelope and counted after election day, if the voter’s information can be verified by the election board.
Osborn said voters who want to get through the line quickly should vote at mid-morning or mid-afternoon because those usually are the two slowest periods.
“Anyone who is eligible and in line at the polling place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday will be entitled to vote,” Osborn said.
