Voters will go to the polls Tuesday, June 26 for the Primary Election, Carter County Election Board Secretary Diane Hall said. Early voting will run 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 21 and 22 and also 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 23. All early voting will take place at the Carter County Election Board Office located at 25 A Street NW Suite 100.
Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 26 at your assigned precinct.
Those who need to verify their registration or polling place may do so online. Sample ballots are also available. The Online Voter Tool can be accessed on the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website at www.elections.ok.gov. Those who vote by mail can also check the status of their ballot using the Online Voter Tool. Sample ballots are also available at the County Election Board office.
Oklahoma law requires every voter who votes in person at the precinct poling place or during early voting at the County Election Board to show proof of identity before receiving a ballot. There are three ways for voters to prove their identity under the law (only one is required): Show valid photo ID issued by federal, state or tribal government; show the free voter registration card issued to every voter; or sign an affidavit and vote on a provisional ballot. If the information on the affidavit and the official voter registration records match, the ballot will be counted after election day.
Physically disabled voters who cannot enter the polling place, need help making their ballots, blind or visually disabled voters and illiterate voters may be assisted by a person the voter chooses. In all cases, a person providing such assistance may not be the voter’s employer or an agent of the employer or an officer or agent of the voter’s union. A person providing assistance also must swear or affirm that the voter’s ballots will be marked in accordance with the voter’s wishes.
Voters who have moved since the last election but who have not transferred their voter registration to their new address may do so on election day by going to vote at the polling place where their registration has been in the past. While voting, they may fill out a form instructing the County Election Board to transfer their registration to the new address before the next election.
Any violation of election law will be reported to the proper law enforcement authorities. Electioneering is not allowed within 300 feet of a ballot box. It is also unlawful to remove a ballot from the polling location, possess intoxicating liquors within half a mile of a polling place or to disclose how you voted while within the election enclosure.
