October 24, 2018



Only a week remains for registered voters in Alfalfa County to apply for absentee ballots to be mailed to them for the Nov. 6 General Election, Alfalfa County Election Board Secretary Kelly Stein said today.

Applications for absentee ballots must be received by the county election board no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, to be processed in time for the election.

Absentee voters may apply in person at the county election board office located at 602 W. 5th St., Ste. 3, Cherokee or may send their applications by mail, fax or e-mail. An online version of the form may be filled out and submitted electronically at http://www.elections.ok.gov. Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Stein said, however absentee voters can activate certain special conditions in the following circumstances:

• Registered voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may apply for absentee ballots only by mail, fax, e-mail, online 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, fax, e-mail, online 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 Alfalfa County living overseas, and the spouses and dependents of each group may apply only by mail, fax or e-mail. For more information and instructions, military and overseas voters may visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website: http://www.fvap.gov/oklahoma.
