Standard (No Excuse) Absentee Ballot for the 2020 General Election

Step 1: Fill out your ballot

Fill out your ballot with a black or blue ink pen, and seal it in the Ballots Envelope.

Place the Ballots Envelope inside the Affidavit Envelope, then seal it.

Step 2: Verify your ballot

For the 2O2O general election, you can either 1) get your absentee ballot affidavit notarized, or 2) attach a photocopy of a valid photo ID.

Option 1: Notarize your ballot

Print your name at the top of the Affidavit Envelope, but do not sign it yet. Sign and date it only in the presence of a notary.

By law, a notary may not charge to notarize a ballot.

Option 2: Attach a photocopy of ID

Print your name, sign, and date your Affidavit Envelope. Then, use tape or a paper clip to attach a copy of the front side of your ID.

Valid photo ID options include an OK driver’s license, U.S. passport, voter registration card, military or tribal ID.

Libraries will photocopy your ID for free.

Note that you cannot use an ID that expires before November 3rd.

Step 3: Return your ballot

Seal the Affidavit Envelope inside the Return Envelope.

To mail your ballot:

Place 2 stamps on the Return Envelope and mail it in A.S.A.P. The post office recommends voters in Oklahoma mail their ballot by Tuesday, October 27th.

To deliver your ballot in person:

You can hand-deliver your ballot anytime before November 2nd at 5 p.m. at your local County Election Board. Make sure you bring a copy of a valid ID (voter registration card, driver’s license, military, or tribal ID).

Note that if you do not mail in or deliver your absentee ballot, you can still vote in person during early voting times or on Election Day.
