Are you ready to vote this year? If you are going to be one of the Edmonites coming out to vote this year? If so, tomorrow (November 8th) is your day to do so! If you need any help figuring out what to bring or where to go, we hope this guide will help you figure things out.

Verifying Your Registration Status

To verify your voter registration status, you can use your state’s tool, or contact your board of elections.

Finding Out Where to Vote

There are a few polling places scattered across the city. Two prominent ones will be St. Elijah Orthodox Church in West Edmond and Oklahoma Christian University in East Edmond. Find polling places near you with this online tool:

Providing Proof of Identification

When voting in person you will need proof of identification:

Proof of identity documents for voting must have been issued by the United States government, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government.

The document used for proof of identity for voting must contain the following information:

  • The name of the person to whom it was issued
  • A photograph of the person to whom it was issued
  • An expiration date that is after the date of the election, unless the identification is valid indefinitely

Examples include:

  • An Oklahoma driver’s license
  • State identification card
  • A U.S. passport
  • Military identification
  • A voter identification card received by mail from the County Election Board when you registered to vote. The law allows use of the voter identification card even though it does not include a photograph or an expiration date.

If you do not have proof of identity, you may only vote by provisional ballot. When you cast a provisional ballot you will be required to fill out and sign an affidavit swearing or affirming you are the person identified on the precinct voter registry. Your provisional ballots will be sealed inside a special envelope and not put through the voting device.

After election day, County Election Board officials will review the information you provided on the affidavit and if it matches your voter registration information they will count your ballot. If the information you provided does not match your voter registration information your vote will be rejected.

Who Will be on Your Ballot?
