Good morning, Ottawa County voters!

There have been some FB posts shared about not receiving voter history credit from the election on Tuesday. It is NOT a conspiracy.

Voter history credit is applied after the election. Each precinct book is reviewed and voter history is given based on that review (by checking signatures). If you signed the precinct book, you will be given voter history credit. This process takes time. If you have received credit but someone you know hasn't, it's probably because their precinct book has not been reviewed yet. Please be patient. Check again at the end of the day. Your voter history credit should be there by then.

Thank you for using the OK Voter Portal! Checking your voter history credit is exactly what it's intended for (along with checking your voter registration information and requesting absentee ballots). https://okvoterportal.okelections.us/

ELECTION DAY VOTING

Polls are open countywide from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Lines at the polls are typically longest before work, during the lunch hour, and after work.

SAFETY PROTOCOLS

The State Election Board worked with OU Health Sciences Center to develop safety protocols for all of Oklahoma’s 2,000 polling places and 77 county election boards. Poll workers at every location have been supplied with personal protective equipment (PPE) including hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, and disinfectant.

Voters are asked to be patient and follow signage and procedures. While it is not required, the State Election Board strongly recommends that voters wear a mask to protect themselves and those around them.

Find more on COVID-19 and the 2020 elections at https://www.ok.gov/elections/Voter_Info/Covid-19_and_2020_Elections.html.

BE PREPARED

Study the candidates and issues before going to the polls. View your sample ballot using the State Election Board’s OK Voter Portal at www.elections.ok.gov. You can also use the portal to find your polling place and track the status of your absentee ballot. Voters are strongly encouraged to verify their voting location before heading to the polls.

PROOF OF IDENTITY

Oklahoma law requires every voter who votes in person to show proof of identity before receiving a ballot.

There are three ways for voters to prove their identity under the law (only one proof of identity is required):

Show a valid photo ID issued by the federal, state, or tribal government; or
Show the free voter identification card issued to every voter by their County Election Board; or
Sign an affidavit and vote a provisional ballot. (If the information on the affidavit matches official voter registration records, the ballot will be counted after Election Day.)
State and county election officials are always your trusted sources for information. Visit the State Election Board website to learn more about elections in Oklahoma at www.elections.ok.gov.
