Advance Voting has begun in the Seward County Clerk’s Office for the Liberal City Commission and the USD 480 School Board race. Advance voting will continue through 12:00 noon, Monday April 6th. General election is set for Tuesday April 7th from 7:00am-7:00pm at the Seward County Activity Center. A photo ID is required to vote.
New Oklahoma law changes ‘early’ voting to the prior Thursday and Friday; affects April 7 election.
A new state law which took effect on November 1, 2013, changes the dates and times voters have come to expect for early voting in Oklahoma. Now, early voting begins on Thursday and continues on Friday, Texas County Election Board Secretary Glenda Williams said today. Of special note, early voting is no longer conducted on Monday.
These changes have occurred due to the approval of SB 869, which was signed into law in May, 2013. As a result, Thursday, April 2, is the first day for in-person absentee aka “early” voting, in the April 7 Election, Williams explained.
