The Aug. 25 elections are tomorrow and if you're interested in returning your absentee ballot without mailing it, today's the last day!

Oklahomans are going to the polls to vote on the Runoff Primary Election and special county elections on Aug. 25.

If you're interested in voting in the state of Oklahoma, but prefer to vote by absentee ballot without mailing it, you're in luck!

The Oklahoma State Election Board said people who received the "standard," or yellow affidavit, which is the common absentee ballot, can hand-deliver their own ballot to the county election board in-person.

According to the Oklahoma State Election Board website, the absentee ballots can be turned in during regular business hours at the county election board.

Voters must hand-deliver their own absentee ballot in-person no later than the day before the election at the end of the county election boards hours of operation. For the August 25 elections, this is the end of business on Monday, August. 24.

Voters must show their same identification that's required for in-person voting. Official said it's unlawful to hand-deliver another person's absentee ballot.

In that case, those requesting "care for physically incapacitated persons" or "physically incapacitated" absentee ballots, this the pink affidavit, must turn in their ballots by a private mail service that has delivery documentation or by U.S. mail.
