TULSA, Okla. — Early voting begins for Tulsa County residents on Thursday morning.
It’s happening at ONEOK Field where the Tulsa Driller’s play.
This will allow for social distancing in an outdoor space.
Early voting on Thursday and Friday runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday. As long as you’re in line by the deadline, you will be allowed to vote.
Voters need to bring a valid photo ID or their voter registration card. A valid ID includes any document issued by the US Government, state of Oklahoma, or federally recognized tribal government that includes a photo and doesn’t expire until after Nov. 3, 2020.
If you don’t have an ID, you will be asked to fill out a provisional ballot and sign a sworn affidavit.
Tulsa Transit is offering free rides home for anyone with an “I voted” sticker, thanks to funding from the League of Women Voters.
The city of Tulsa is waiving parking fees for early voting, so there will be 1200 free parking spots nearby.
Careful what you choose to wear to vote; state law says you cannot wear or bring signs within 300 feet of a ballot box that are political and/or endorse a candidate or state question on the ballot.
Tulsa police will be patrolling outside of the stadium and Tulsa County Sheriff’s Deputies will be inside to help with security needs.
Voters should NOT bring absentee ballots to ONEOK. Those can be hand-delivered to the Tulsa County Election board four blocks away.
If people go to the election board to early vote by mistake, they will be given a map and asked to follow a series of signs to get to the right place. There will also be a shuttle service from the election board building.
Absentee ballots need to be handed in by 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2. If they are sent through the mail, they need to be at the election building by 7 p.m. on Nov. 3rd. Any ballots after that will not be counted.
