Early voting begins Thursday May 6 for the South Rock Creek school bond issues in Pottawatomie County . Voters who will not be able to make it to the polls on Election Day, May 11, have the option of voting early at their County Election Board offices in downtown Shawnee.

Pottawatomie County Election Board Secretary Patricia Carter said early voting is open to all voters.

“You do not need to provide an excuse to vote early. Oklahoma allows early voting for all elections conducted through the State Election Board—from school board and municipal elections to state and federal elections. This is a great option for those who will be out of town on Election Day or who want to avoid long lines,” Carter said.

Early voting is available Thursday May 6 and Friday May 7 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the County Election Board located at 330 N. Broadway, Shawnee. Carter reminds voters that early voting is not available at polling locations.

The Pottawatomie County Election Board is now located at 330 North Broadway  (the former MidFirst bank building), and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays.

For questions, please contact the Election Board at (405) 273-8376 or email pottawatomiecounty@elections.ok.gov.
