Voting in a Pandemic

As with many of our activities, voting during the COVID-19 pandemic includes changes to our typical voting experience. What has not changed is the importance of voting in every election!  The June 30th Primary Elections include federal and state primaries, as well as State Question 802 relating to Medicaid expansion. Remember, your vote is your voice! Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you make your plan to vote:

Election Day Voting:
Plan for longer lines as polling locations will implement social distancing requirements per CDC guidelines. More than 100,000 Tulsa County residents will receive a new voter ID card with written notice their regular polling location has changed.

Early Voting
The Hardesty Library at 93rd & Memorial will not be available for early voting. You may still vote early at the Tulsa County Election Board at 555 N. Denver Avenue.  Early voting hours are:
          Thursday, June 25th: 8 am – 6 pm
          Friday, June 26th:  8 am – 6 pm
          Saturday, June 27th:  9 am – 2 pm

Absentee Voting:
If you prefer to vote by mail, you may request an absentee ballot (here) before 5 pm Wednesday, June 24th. Absentee ballots must be received by Tulsa County Election Board by 7 pm on the day of the election. Legislation passed in May allows for a copy of your valid ID to be included with your ballot in lieu of the signature notarization. Be sure to sign and date the affidavit envelope and include adequate postage to return your ballots by mail. 

We will keep you posted on future election dates and important information regarding nonpartisan resources and voter engagement activities and information.
