Voters who want to vote by absentee ballot for the 2020 election year should submit their absentee ballot applications to their county election board as soon as possible, the Sequoyah County Election Board secretary said Tuesday.
Voters can request ballots for individual elections or for all elections they are eligible to vote in during the 2020 election year. Voters are urged to apply early.
“We have many federal, state and local elections coming up this year. Signing up for absentee ballots is a great way to make sure you stay informed and never miss an election,” said Cindy Osborn, county election board secretary.
Applications are available at the Sequoyah County Election Board, 110 E. Creek St., or they can be downloaded at elections.ok.gov. Voters can also apply electronically using the state election board’s OK Voter Portal at elections.ok.gov/ovp.
Osborn reminds voters that requests must be submitted no later than the Wednesday before the first election in which the voter would like to participate. The first election for Sequoyah County is Feb. 11, 2020. The list of elections can be found at elections.ok.gov.
For more information on requesting absentee ballots or registering to vote, contact the Sequoyah County Election Board at (918) 775-2614. Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
