With a big election primary coming up on June 30, the state election board announced plans to help Oklahomans vote in the day and age of coronavirus.

Several banks and financial institutions across Oklahoma plan to offer free absentee voting services to those who are worried about exposure at their polling location.

One of more of the below services will be offered:

  • Free ID copy (lobby and/or drive-thru)
  • Free absentee ballot notarization (lobby and/or drive-thru)
Banks and credit unions are in almost every community in Oklahoma. They’re our neighbors and community partners and they realize the importance of democracy. That’s why we’re excited to work with these financial institutions to ensure that every voter—both customers and non-customers alike—have free and convenient absentee services available to them.
Paul Ziriax | Secretary of the State Election Board
