Absentee ballot deadline is today


From The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Today marks the deadline for Oklahoma voters to request an absentee ballot for next week's general election.

Absentee ballots must be requested by 5 p.m. Wednesday. The completed ballots must be submitted to the county in which a person is registered to vote.

State election officials said last week that they'd mailed more than 66,000 absentee ballots to Oklahoma voters, with requests from registered Republicans outpacing Democrats.

Early voting begins Friday in Oklahoma and continues Saturday and Monday.
