The Sequoyah County Election Board will close to the public effective March, 19 until further notice after Sequoyah County Commisioners and department heads held an emergency meeting on Wednesday, March 18 and voted to close the Sequoyah County Courthouse which includes the annex building houses the election board. The emergency meeting was held due to recommendations made this week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to limit public gatherings to ten people or less in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).

Business hours may be modified due to the unusual circumstances, but calls and emails will be returned in a timely manner. Voters who need to conduct business in person can call or email the County Election Board to make special arrangements.
