Officials said it's important to make sure voters have an election in their county before they head to the polls. Some counties may only have county or local elections, while others may not have any elections at all.

“I always recommend checking the OK Voter Portal before you head to the polls to find your polling place and view a sample ballot. If you have a sample ballot available in the portal, that means you have an election in your precinct. If no ballot is available, it means you do not have an election,” said State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax.
