You do not need to provide ID if you've already voted in Oklahoma at least once. If you are voting for the first time in Oklahoma and you did not include a copy of your ID with your voter registration form, you must include a copy with your absentee ballot application. You may provide a copy of a current driver۪s license or other photo identification that shows your name OR a copy of a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or government document that shows your name and Oklahoma address.
If you are incapacitated or hospitalized after 5 p.m. on the Tuesday before election day, you may vote using an emergency absentee ballot. You must submit a written request to your local county election board, and your request must include a statement from your doctor that you are incapacitated and unable to vote in person on election day. (Your county election office can also provide a form for your voter request and your doctor's statement). Find someone to hand-deliver your written request and your doctor's statement to the county election board office. This person is considered your 'agent.' The county board will give your agent your absentee ballot. After your complete your absentee ballot, your agent must return it to the county election board office before 7 p.m. election day.5 p.m. on the Tuesday before election day7 p.m. election day
