Less than a week remains for registered voters in Logan County to apply for absentee ballots to be mailed to them for the November 4th Guthrie School District, Federal, State, and County General Election, Logan County Election Board Secretary Erin Dorio said today.

Applications for absentee ballots must be in the hands of the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 29, to be processed.

Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Dorio said. Absentee voters may apply in person at the County Election Board office or may send their applications by mail, fax, or e-mail. Voters also may apply for absentee ballots for the following reasons:

  • Registered voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may apply for absentee ballots only by mail, fax, e-mail, or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.
  • Registered voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may apply by mail, by fax, by e-mail, or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.
  • Military personnel, residents of Logan County living overseas, and the spouses and dependents of each group may apply only by mail, by fax, or by e-mail. For more information and instructions, military and overseas voters may visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website: www.fvap.gov/oklahoma.

For more information on absentee voting, contact the County Election Board at 224 E Vilas. The telephone number is 405-282-1900. The County Election Board’s fax number is 405-282-1994.
