Absentee voters can vote at the Grady County Election Board next week

CHICKASHA — Absentee voters who missed the deadline for the June 24 primary election can still vote in person at the Grady County Election Board Office next week.

Grady County Election Board Secretary Susan Turner said absentee voters can vote at the office June 19-21.

"In-person absentee voters fill out an application form when they get to the office. They are not required to give a reason for voting absentee," Turner said. "They are required to swear that they have not voted a regular mail absentee ballot and that they will not vote at their polling places on Election Day."

A two-member, bipartisan Absentee Voting Board will verify voters' registration information before issuing their ballots, she said.

The voter will still mark the ballots in a voting booth and put them in the voting device, Turner said.

The Grady County Election Board is at 307 W. Pennsylvania Ave. in Chickasha.

On Election Day, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and voters should take their voter identification card, driver license or another form of identification with them, Turner said.

"If you make a mistake marking your ballot, don't try to correct it. Take the spoiled ballot back to the precinct officials. They will destroy it and give you a new one," she said.
