Early Voting Underway in Oklahoma
CREATED Nov. 2, 2012
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Early voting is under way in Oklahoma. Voters could begin casting in-person absentee ballots Friday morning at all 77 county election board offices across the state.
Dozens of voters were lined up Friday outside the Oklahoma County Election Board office in Oklahoma City.
State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says voting will run from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday and Monday and 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday. Election Day is Tuesday.
Voters can also return absentee ballots by mail if they're received by 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
Ziriax says Oklahoma's new voter ID law requires voters to show a valid government issued photo ID or state-issued election card. Otherwise, voters may cast provisional ballots that will be counted after the voter's registration is verified.
