The Oklahoma State Election Board will allow voters to have more information at their fingertips thanks to their new OK Voter Portal.
“The OK Voter Portal is a one-stop-shop for voters. It’s convenient, mobile-friendly, and most importantly—it’s safe and secure,” Paul Ziriax, State Election Board Secretary said in a news release.
The information portal debuted this month on elections.ok.gov/ovp. The portal will allow voters to:
- Verify voter registration information
- View voting districts
- Find polling place information
- View a sample ballot
- Request and check the status of absentee ballots
- Change a residence address (within the same county) or a mailing address
- Change political affiliation
- Respond to an Address Confirmation Notice (during the year it is issued)
Ziriax said Oklahomans should be cautious about using sites or services not operated by election officials.
“More and more organizations are offering services and information to voters that duplicate what the State Election Board already provides – such as signing up for election reminders, locating your polling place, or requesting an absentee ballot," he said. “What most people don’t realize, though, is that these sites are not affiliated with the State Election Board. For accurate, secure, and up-to-date information, voters should always contact the State Election Board or their County Election Board first.”
