NEWKIRK — Early voting begins Thursday June 13 for voters in Kay County and the Kildare School District. 

Voters who will not be able to make it to the polls on Election Day, have the option of voting early at their County Election Board.

Kay County Election Board Secretary Carol Leaming said early voting is open to all voters. 

“You 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.”

Early voting is available Thursday, June 13 and Friday June 14 from 8 a.m. until  6 p.m.  and Saturday, June 15 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kay County Election Board Office located in the Kay County Administration Building at 219 south Main in Newkirk. 

Leaming reminds voters that early voting is not available at polling locations.

Some voters may need assistance to vote because they are blind or visually disabled, physically disabled or infirmed, or illiterate. 

Such individuals may request to have assistance or vote privately and independently using the ATI device attached to the voting device. Those who require assistance should talk to their precinct official or contact the County Election Board directly for instructions.
