You should plan on showing "proof of identification" when you vote, such as a valid photo ID or your Oklahoma voter ID card. If you do not have an ID, you will be allowed to cast a provisonal ballot by signing an affidavit.
- An extended emergency declaration from Governor Kevin Stitt will mean that Oklahoma voters will be able to cast mail-in absentee ballots without the notary requirement for the November general election. Instead, voters will have the option to submit a copy of a valid photo ID. Learn more here.
