Early voting available for Nov. 8 general election

Vote 2016With the Nov. 8 general election just days away, Mustang and Canadian county voters should take note of the options they have available when it comes to voting.

Next week, Thursday through Saturday, the county election board, located in El Reno, will offer early voting in their office. They are located at 210 W. Rogers St.

The office will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

On election day, polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Long lines are possible at peak voting times and wait times will likely be shortest at mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

Anyone in line to vote at 7 p.m. will be allowed to cast a ballot, Election Board Secretary Wanda Armold said.

Voting resources are available on the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website at www.elections.ok.gov. This includes a polling place locator, verifying registration information or viewing a sample ballot.

Anyone that has voted by absentee ballot can check their status of their ballot using the “Online Voter Tool.”

Be sure to bring an ID with you on election day. State law requires one before receiving a ballot. Accepted IDs include a voter ID or any federal, state or tribal-issued ID.

Voters who have moved since the last election, but who have not moved their registration to their new address, should go to their former polling place. They may fill out a form instructing the County Election Board to transfer their registration to the new address before the next election.

To contact the county election board, call 422-2422.
