New Oklahoma law changes ‘early’ voting to the prior Thursday and Friday; affects March 3 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, February 26 is the first day for in-person absentee aka “early” voting, in the March 3 Election, Williams explained.
