According to County Election Board Secretary Tiffany Rozell, applications for absentee ballots must be received by the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2, to be processed in time for the election.

Absentee voters may apply in person at the County Election Board office or may send their applications by mail, fax, or email. An online version of the form may be filled out and submitted electronically at www.elections.ok.gov. Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Rozell said. However, absentee voters can activate certain special conditions in the following circumstances:

Registered voters who are physically incapacitated or who care for physically incapacitated people who cannot be left unattended may apply for absentee ballots only by mail, fax, email, online or via an agent who is at least 16 years old and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to anyone whose name is on the ballot.

Registered voters confined to nursing homes in the county may apply by mail, by fax, by email, online or via an agent who is at least 16 years old and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to anyone whose name appears on the ballot.

Military personnel, residents of Cherokee County living overseas, and the spouses and dependents of each group may apply only by mail, by fax, or by email. For more information and instructions, military and overseas voters may visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website, www.fvap.gov/oklahoma.
