ABOUT THIS STATE
Not many states get an iconic Broadway song that teaches everyone how to spell its name, but you know what, Oklahoma? You deserve it. After all, the Center of the Universe is in Oklahoma. Ok fine, it's just a spot with a weird acoustic anomaly, but still, pretty cool. Here's what you need to know about voting this year in the Sooner state.Be A Voter

SINCE YOU LAST VOTED…
Since 2020, there have been changes that will impact how you cast your ballot in Oklahoma. Here are the differences you should keep an eye on:
When making a plan to vote…
- The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot has been moved up – it used to be one week before Election Day but is now fifteen days before. (That’s October 24th, 2022, for anyone who was counting.) Get your request in early!
- There’s now an extra day of early voting – it now starts the Wednesday before the general election (November 2nd) and runs through that Saturday (November 5th). Check your county website for details on early voting hours and locations.
- You now need to include some form of ID number (typically a license or SSN) when applying for an absentee ballot by mail. Make sure it’s the same ID you used when registering to vote, or else you’ll have to jump through more hoops with the state government – and no one wants that.
- Oklahoma will send an address confirmation notice if they think you may have moved. Be on the lookout and return that document, or else you may not be able to vote!
When casting your vote…
- If you help fill out and sign a ballot on behalf of another voter, you’ll now need to include your address and signature as well.

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can win 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. We need to protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states and support challengers in winnable states. You can start today by donating here to directly support eight of the most competitive Senate races of 2022.
