Time Off For Voting: Yes

Employees who begin their work day less than 3 hours after polls open and finish less than 3 hours before polls close are entitled to 2 hours leave to vote (or more if distance requires). The employee must give notice the day before Election Day and cannot have pay reduced if proof of voting is provided. The employer can set the time for leave to vote.

Voting At The Polls On Election Day

On regular and special election days, polling places are open from 7 AM until 7 PM. (Hours are different for early voting.)

You may show any document issued by the United States, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government if it includes your name, a photograph of you, and an expiration date that is later than the election in which you are voting. For example, the following documents meet these requirements:

  • Oklahoma driver license
  • Oklahoma Identification Card
  • United States passport

The law also requires that your name on your proof of identity must match your name in the Precinct Registry

There are two alternatives to showing a photo identification described above:

  • 1. You may show the free Voter Identification Card issued by the County Election Board as proof of identity even though it does not include a photograph.
  • 2. You may vote by provisional ballot and prove your identity by signing a sworn affidavit.

May I use my tribal membership card as proof of identity?

  • You may use a tribal membership card if it includes your name and a photograph of you, provided it is not expired.

What if I do not have proof of identity with me when I go to vote?

  • If you do not show proof of identity, you may vote only by provisional ballot. Voters who cast provisional ballots are required to fill out and sign an affidavit that explains why their provisional ballot should be counted. Provisional ballots are sealed inside special envelopes and are not put through the voting device. After election day, County Election Board officials will investigate the information provided by the voter on the affidavit and either will approve the provisional ballot for counting or will reject it based on the outcome of that investigation. In order for a provisional ballot to be approved for counting, the information on the affidavit must match the information in the voter's registration record.

What happens if I refuse to show proof of identity?

  • If you do not have or if you refuse to show proof of identity, you may vote by provisional ballot and prove your identity by submitting a sworn affidavit with the provisional ballot. Provisional ballots are sealed inside special envelopes and are not put through the voting device. After election day, County Election Board officials will investigate the information provided by the voter on the affidavit and either will approve the provisional ballot for counting or will reject it based on the outcome of that investigation. In order for a provisional ballot to be approved for counting, the information on the affidavit must match the information in the voter's registration record.

If I vote by mail absentee ballot, do I have to enclose a copy of my proof of identity with my ballot?

  • No. Most voters who vote by absentee ballot either have their signatures on their affidavits notarized or have them witnessed by two people. The law considers the notarization or witnessing sufficient to establish the identity of an absentee voter.

Can I Register At The Polls On Election Day?

NO: Oklahoma does not provide Same Day Voter Registration. You must register to vote by the voter registration deadline in order to vote in an election. If you miss the voter registration deadline for an election you should contact your local election office.
