Q: Is everyone eligible to vote by mail?


To vote by mail in Oklahoma, you must apply for a ballot. This is the easiest way to never forget to vote.  Start by applying here. Applying online is fast, easy, and secure through the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website!

You can ask for any ballot you can vote on for the calendar year. Even if you have requested to vote by mail previously, you must make a new request every year. For example, if you requested to receive your ballot by mail in 2018 or 2019, you must make a new request for 2020.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the November general election is 5 PM on Tuesday, October 27, 2020.

Your polling location can be found by checking your registration with the Oklahoma State Election Board.
