Deadline to request absentee ballots for June 24 election nears

TAHLEQUAH — Less than a week remains for registered voters in Cherokee County to apply for absentee ballots to be mailed to them for the June 24 Primary Election, said County Election Board Secretary Mary Kaye Smith.

Applications for absentee ballots must be in the hands of the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11, to be processed.

Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Smith said.

Absentee voters may apply in person at the County Election Board office or may send their applications by mail, fax, or e-mail. Voters also may apply for absentee ballots for the following reasons:

• Registered voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may apply for absentee ballots by mail, fax, email, or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.

• Registered voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may apply by mail, by fax, by email, or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.

• Military personnel, residents of Cherokee County living overseas, and the spouses and dependents of each group may apply by mail, by fax, or by email. For more information and instructions, military and overseas voters may visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website: www.fvap.gov/oklahoma.

For more information on absentee voting, contact the County Election Board, 214 S. College Ave., 918-456-2261. The fax number is 918-453-2022.
