Voting early is a convenient option for people who aren't sure if they can make it to the polls on Tuesday. You will need to bring proof of your identity no matter when you vote.

"There are three ways to prove your identity when you go the polls and you’ll have to do that whether you vote on Tuesday or you vote during early voting," said Paul Ziriax, Secretary of State Election Board

You can show a valid photo ID from the state of Oklahoma, the federal government or a tribal government. The voter ID card issued to every voter will also work. If you don't have either of those, you can still vote with a provisional ballot. You'll just have to sign an affidavit, and when the election board proves you're eligible, your ballot will be counted.

"This is a big election," said Ziriax. "Every election is a big election. I’m just hopeful our registered voters will confirm they’re registered, become familiar with the ballot, make a plan to vote, and show up either during the early voting period Thursday, Friday, Saturday or show up on Tuesday."
