Voter HQ

Welcome to the new BWST Voter HQ!

We will keep updating this page as we continue to move closer to Election Day.  In the interim, check out the resources below for help registering and researching candidates!

NEXT ELECTION DAY: Tuesday, November 6th, 2018
NEXT REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, October 12th, 2018

I need to register for the first time, what do I do?

Click here to print out a voter registration form and mail it in or deliver it to the Election Board offices at 555 N. Detroit Ave. You can also visit your local tag agency to register to vote before the deadline.

How do I know if I am eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to register to vote in the state of Oklahoma if:

  • You are 18 years of age or older.
  • You are a resident of the state.
  • You are a US citizen.
  • You have not committed a felony OR, if you have, you have completed your sentence and are no longer on parole.
  • You are not under judgment as an incapacitated person.

I am already registered, but want to change my address or party affiliation.  How do I do that?

It’s easy!  If you are a registered voter and have moved or need to make a change, you can now update your mailing address, residential address or party affiliation online by clicking here.

I am registered and ready to vote – but I don’t know where to go vote!

That’s easy!  Just go to bit.ly/OklahomaVoter and enter your information to find your polling place and a ton of other important information.

When can I vote on Election Day?

Polls in Oklahoma are open from 7am – 7pm on Election Day (see below for info about early voting). As long as you are in line at your neighborhood polling place by 7pm on the dot, you can vote!

What do I need to bring with me when I vote?

You need to bring a state issued photo ID with you to vote. It is also helpful to have your Voter Registration Card with you (it’s mailed to you after you register), but it’s not required!

What if I can’t vote on Election Day?

Oklahoma allows people to vote early from 8am to 6pm on the Thursday, Friday and from 9am to 2pm on the Saturday before an election at the county election board.  See the information below for specific info about early voting for the November election:

When –

  • Thursday, November 1, 8am-6pm
  • Friday, November 2, 8am-6pm
  • Saturday, November 3, 9am-2pm

Where (note that these locations are ONLY open for early voting. You will need to vote at your local polling place if you vote on Election Day) –

  • Tulsa County Election Board
    • 555 N. Denver Ave.
  • Hardesty Library
    • 8316 E 93rd St.

I am registered and ready to vote – but I need help knowing what candidates are running in my district.  How do I find that information?

Great news!  Simpoll is a new voting system designed to help Tulsa residents search the candidates that will appear on their ballot. The group is updating their information to reflect the general election now.  You can click here or go to simpollvoting.com to visit the website.

Once you are registered, you can download your sample ballot which will look identical to the one you will receive on Election Day by going to bit.ly/OklahomaVoter and entering your information.

I don’t know whether I side more with Democrats, Republicans or somewhere in between.  How do I find out which party my beliefs align to more?
