2023 Oklahoma Voter Guide


Oklahoma voters can take great pride in their state’s election system. It is considered one of the most reliable, accurate, secure, efficient, and cost-effective voting systems in the world.

Proof of identity is required no matter how you vote. The three accepted forms of ID are:

  • ID issued by the United States government, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government
  • The free voter identification card voters receive by mail from the county election board when they registered to vote 
  • A signed sworn affidavit allowing you to vote by provisional ballot

Ability to check your registration status any time. Go to okvoterportal.okelections.us to check your status.

No matter where you live in our state, voting is the same for more than 2 million registered voters. We mark the same style of ballots subject to the same standards and regulations.

In the event of a power outage or technical issue, voters deposit their marked ballots into a locked emergency ballot bin. Ballots are counted once the power has been restored or the voting devices and equipment have been returned to the county election board.

The State Election Board monitors social media and other platforms for misinformation and disinformation. Action is taken to correct and/or report the dissemination of false election and voter information.

Oklahoma’s voting devices are never connected to the internet.

A law enacted in 2020 created an official definition of “Absentee Ballot Harvesting” and new criminal penalties for these acts. Absentee ballot harvesting — when a third party collects and drops off absentee ballots to an election official — is unlawful at any election conducted by a county election board in Oklahoma.
