Voters who want to vote by absentee ballot for the 2020 Election Year should submit their absentee ballot applications to their County Election Board as soon as possible, the Lincoln County Election Board Secretary said today. Voters can request ballots for individual elections or for all elections they are eligible to vote in during the 2020 Election Year. County Election Board Secretary, Melissa Stambaugh, encourages voters to apply early.

“We have many federal, state, and local elections coming up this year. Signing up for absentee ballots is a great way to make sure you stay informed and never miss an election,” said Stambaugh.

Applications are available at the Lincoln County Election Board, or can be downloaded at: elections.ok.gov. Voters can also apply electronically using the State Election Board’s OK Voter Portal at: elections.ok.gov/ovp.

Stambaugh reminds voters that requests must be submitted no later than the Wednesday before the first election in which the voter would like to participate. The first election for Lincoln County is February 11th, 2020, for Wellston School District, Luther School District and McLoud School District. A complete list of elections can be found at: elections.ok.gov.
