The Oklahoma State Primary and special elections are on Tuesday, June 30.
Polls are set to open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m., according to the Oklahoma State Election Board.
Below are the times for early voting at county election boards:
- June 25 and 26: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- June 27: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Oklahomans will be asked to vote on State Question 802 - Medicaid Expansion Initiative:
According to Oklahoma State Election Boards, "Medicaid is a government-sponsored health insurance program for qualifying low-income persons. This measure would add a provision to the Oklahoma Constitution requiring the State to expand Medicaid coverage. The expanded coverage would include certain persons over 18 and under 65 who are not already covered and whose annual income, as calculated under federal law, is at or below 133% of the federal poverty line. The federal poverty line changes annually, but for example if this measure were in effect in 2019, the measure generally would have covered a single adult making less than $17,236 annually and adults in a family of four making less than $35,535 annually.
Under this measure, the State cannot create additional restrictions that make it more difficult to qualify for expanded Medicaid coverage than it is to qualify for the Medicaid program currently in place. The Medicaid program is funded jointly by the federal government and the State. This measure would require the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) to try to maximize federal funding for Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma. If the measure is approved, OHCA has 90 days to submit all documents necessary to obtain federal approval for implementing Medicaid expansion by July 1, 2021.
