2020 Election Information
On June 30, 2020 Oklahomans will go to the polls for the 2020 primary elections. With strict social distancing guidelines in place, long lines are expected at many polling places around the state. For your convenience and safety, you have the option of requesting an absentee ballot (vote by mail).
You may request an absentee ballot online at https://www.ok.gov/elections/Voter_Info/Absentee_Voting/
If you prefer, absentee ballots can also be requested using a print and mail-in form found at the above website. The library also has copies of the request form available at no cost.
In order to prevent voter fraud, the state of Oklahoma requires that you provide proof of your identity when mailing in your ballot. Under normal circumstances, a notarization by a public notary is required for most voters. This year, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the state is giving voters the option to mail in a copy of either their voter registration card or a valid photo ID with their ballot instead of requiring a notarization.
Here at the library, we are making both services available to you at no cost. Public notaries will be available at the library via curbside service the following hours:
The person whose signature we are notarizing must be present and we must see a valid picture ID before notarizing.
For your convenience, a notary will also be available from 3:00pm-7:00pm June 2nd-4th.
We are also offering free copies of your voter registration card or photo ID via curbside service during all hours the library is open:
Call us at 918-266-1684 when you arrive and we will come out to assist you.
