Voters in western Oklahoma will be returning to prescients throughout the area on August 25 but time is running out to submit a request for an Absentee Ballot.

According to election officials, if a voter would like an absentee ballot they have until Tuesday, August 18 at 5 p.m. to submit an application. Applications can be downloaded at or be obtained at county election board offices. Officials say the application must be in the board office, submitted online, faxed, or delivered in-person before the deadline.

Early voting for the Election will begin Thursday, August 20, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. at election board offices and will continue on Friday, August 21, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Officials remind that a valid proof of identity is required both for early voting and voting at the polling place.

Elections to be decided on August 25 include a special bond proposition for the Canute Public Schools, and a runoff primary election for Custer County Commissioner District 2 between Carl Bailey and Bruce Lane Walker.
