Those wanting to cast an early ballot for next Tuesday’s election need to know the law has changed. Days for early in-person absentee are different. Until now, if you wanted to vote early, the days for local and state elections were the Friday and Monday before the Tuesday vote. Tulsa County Election Board Secretary Patty Bryant says that’s no longer the case. The early voting days for in-person absentee balloting are now the Thursday and Friday in advance of the Tuesday vote.
Friday is the last day to register to vote in the November 12th Tulsa Mayoral and tax extension election. On the ballot for residents of Tulsa, the race for mayor and city auditor, a tax extension and bond issue for nearly 920-million dollars worth of projects, and a question hiking city councilor’s pay, but taking away their ability to vote pay hikes for themselves. Election Board Secretary Patty Bryant says it’s a non-partisan ballot, so anyone who lives in the city of Tulsa and is properly registered may vote.
The Tulsa County Election Board is prepared for big crowds as early voting gets underway today in Oklahoma.
Four ars ago in the last presidential election, lines ran all the way to the street and down the sidewalk. Early in-person absentee voting is allowed today , Saturday, and Monday…but you must go to the Election Board on North Denver Avenue to cast your ballot.
