Early voting begins June 13

Early voting starts June 13 for voters in LeFlore County. Voters who will not be able to make it to the polls on election day, have the option of voting early at their county election board.

LeFlore County election board secretary Sharon Steele said early voting is open to all voters.

“You do not need to provide an excuse to vote early,” she said. “Oklahoma allows early voting for all elections conducted by the county or state election board, from school board and municipal elections to state and federal elections. It’s a great option for those who will be out of town on election day or who want to avoid long lines.”

Early voting is available June 13 and June 14 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and June 15 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the election board office at 103 North Church Street in Poteau. Steele said early voting is not available at polling locations.

Some voters may need assistance to vote because they are blind or visually disabled, physically disabled, infirmed or illiterate. Such individuals may request to have an assistant or vote privately using the ATI device attached to the voting board. Those requiring assistance should talk to their precinct official or contact the county election board directly for instructions.

For questions, call the election board at (918) 647-3703 or email leflorecounty@elections.ok.gov.
