Deadlines for July 14 election

Registered voters in Tulsa County who want to vote by mail absentee ballot in the July 14 City of Sand Springs Special Election, as well as a Special Democratic Primary Election for State House District 73, have until July 8 at 5 p.m. to request one, County Election Board Secretary Patty Bryant said today.

Voters who want to cast absentee ballots still can do so in person at the County Election Board office on July 9, July 10 or July 11.

A two-member, bipartisan Absentee Voting Board will be on duty from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday to assist absentee voters and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“In-person absentee voters fill out an application form when they get to the office. They are not required to give any reason for voting absentee,” Bryant said. “They are required to swear that they have not voted a regular mail absentee ballot and that they will not vote at their polling place on election day.” In-person absentee voters are also required to provide ID, just as if they were voting at their poll on election day.

For more information, contact the Tulsa County Election Board at 555 N. Denver Ave.

The phone number is (918) 596-5780.
