NEWKIRK — Early voting continues today and on Saturday for the March 5 presidential preferential primary election.

Carol Leaming, Kay County Election Board secretary, said that about 100 people voted on Thursday.

Voters who are not able to make it to the polls on Election Day,  can vote at the election board today until 6 p.m. and on Saturday 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

There are three ballots, Democrat, Libertarian, and Republican.

Leaming, said early voting is open to all voters. 

 â€œYou do not need to provide an excuse to vote early. Oklahoma allows early voting for all elections conducted by the County Election Board or State Election Board from school board and municipal elections to state and federal elections. This is a great option for those who will be out of town on Election Day or who want to avoid long lines,” Leaming said.

Some voters may need to assistance to vote because they are blind or visually disabled, physically disabled or infirmed, or illiterate. Such individuals may request to have an assistant or vote privately and independently using the ATI device attached to the voting device. Those who require assistance should talk to their precinct officials or contact the County Election Board directly for instructions.
