Oklahoma residents can apply to vote absentee whether or not they're out of state on Election Day.
You can apply to vote absentee by using:
- The Oklahoma Online Absentee Application (online) -- Application deadline is 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before Election Day.
- The Oklahoma Absentee Ballot Application (paper) -- Application deadline is 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before Election Day. Mailed applications postmarked on or before the deadline do not count if they are received after the deadline.
Once you receive your absentee ballot, you must complete it and deliver it to your county election board by mail before 7 p.m. on Election Day.
In Oklahoma, you are permitted to vote absentee if you are:
- A member of the U.S. military or their spouse/dependent
- A Merchant Marine or their spouse/dependent
- Living/working outside of the United States
You can register to vote, update your voter registration information and/or request an absentee ballot by using the Voter Registration and Absentee Ballot Request Federal Post Card Application. You can either:
- Use the FVAP online assistant.
- Download the form and fill it out by hand. The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) provides instructions on how to fill it out.
