Absentee ballots available beginning on Friday

Registered voters in Logan County who want to vote by mail absentee ballot in next Tuesday’s Presidential Preferential Primary Election have missed the application deadline, County Election Board Secretary Dorio said today.

“They aren’t out of luck, however,” Dorio said.

Voters who want to cast absentee ballots still can do so at the County Election Board office on Friday, March 2, or Monday, March 5.  A two-member, bipartisan Absentee Voting Board will be on duty each day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to assist absentee voters.  The Absentee Voting Board will also be on duty from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 3.

“In-person absentee voters fill out an application form when they get to the office.  They are not required to give a reason for voting absentee,” Dorio 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 places on election day.”

According to Dorio, the Absentee Voting Board verifies a voter’s registration information, then issues the voter’s ballots.  The voter marks the ballots in a voting booth and then puts them in the voting device.  “It is very much like voting at a precinct polling place,” said Dorio.

Contact the County Election Board, located at 224 E Vilas Ave., Guthrie, OK  73044, for more information.  The telephone number is 405-282-1900.
