What do I need to bring?

You will need to show ID to vote in Oklahoma. You may show your voter identification card issued to you by your County Election Board. You may also show any document issued by the United States, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government if it includes the following information:

  • photo
  • expiration date that is later than the election in which you are voting

Acceptable forms include:
  • Oklahoma driver's license
  • Oklahoma ID Card
  • US passport

If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot and prove your identity by signing a sworn affidavit.

Visit the Oklahoma State Election Board's website for more information.

Can I register to vote online?

  • Oklahoma offers online voter registration.
  • You should know: to use Oklahoma's online voter registration system, you will need a valid Oklahoma driver’s license or state identification card issued by Service Oklahoma, and a digital signature on file with Service Oklahoma. If you don't have an Oklahoma-issued ID or digital signature on file with Service Oklahoma, you can still submit a voter registration application by mail.

Can I submit voter registration forms by mail?

Use the National Voter Registration Form

  1. Print and fill out the National Voter Registration Form.
  2. Box 6 - ID Number: When submitting your application by mail in Oklahoma, you are required to provide your Oklahoma driver’s license or state ID number if you have one. If you have not been issued one of these ID numbers, you must provide the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  3. Box 7 - Choice of Party: Oklahoma requires that you register with a party to participate in partisan primary elections. You should register with the party whose primary you would like to vote in. However, some parties allow unaffiliated voters to participate in their primary elections.
  4. Box 8 - Race or Ethnic Group: Leave blank. This information is not required.
  5. Review the "Who can register to vote?" section above and check that you're eligible.

How do I vote if I'm in the military or live overseas?

Active-duty military, their families, and overseas citizens can register to vote and request their absentee ballot using the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The FPCA process is done by mail, but your state may offer other options to request and return ballots. Please contact your local election office for more information about delivery and return methods, including email, fax, and state online portals. To follow the FPCA process:
  1. Fill out the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA), or download a copy. Your local election office may have questions, so please provide an email address or phone number where they can reach you.
  2. Send the application to your local election office.
  3. It is never too early to submit an FPCA! Please do so as soon as possible.
  4. Please fill out and send back your ballot as soon as you receive it.
  5. States begin mailing absentee ballots at least 45 days before Election Day. If you haven't received your ballot by 30 days before Election Day, contact your local election office.
If after submitting your FPCA, your ballot does not arrive, contact your local election office first. Then:
  • You can still vote using the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB). Print, sign, and mail your FWAB to your local election office.
  • If you mail a FWAB and then receive your regular absentee ballot, you should complete and mail your absentee ballot also. Election officials will ensure that only one ballot is counted.
The Federal Voting Assistance Program offers additional information on military and overseas voting in Oklahoma. You can also call 1-800-438-VOTE (8683) or email
