Monday 5 p.m. Deadline For Hand-Delivered Absentee Ballots

Chris Polansky

The deadline to hand-deliver absentee ballots to the Tulsa County Election Board is 5:00 p.m. Monday, the day before Election Day.

"If you come in on Election Day to try to deliver your absentee ballot, by law we can not accept it," said Gwen Freeman, Tulsa County Election Board Secretary. 

The Oklahoma State Election Board said Sunday that statewide records had been broken for most in-person early votes cast (164,000) and for most mail-in absentee ballots received (264,000). 

Tulsa County did not match or beat its record for most in-person early votes, which was set in 2016 at 17,698, when both the Election Board building and Hardesty Regional Library served as early voting sites. This year, only ONEOK Field was a polling place for early voting, and 13,328 voted between Thursday and Saturday.

Absentee ballots sent by mail must be received by the election board by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day.

Traditional in-person polling places will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.
