Early voting underway; election is Tuesday
Early voting for the City of Morris Mayor election continues today at the Okmulgee County Courthouse. 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.
A Special Election for Mayor of the City of Morris will be held Tuesday, Nov. 14.
There are three citizens seeking the post:
• Joe Berryhill
• Greg Foreman
• Nicholas Jindra “You do not need to provide an excuse to vote early,” Election Board Secretary Ashley Carnes said. “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 Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Okmulgee County Courthouse at 314 W. 7th St. in Okmulgee. Carnes 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 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 official or contact the County Election Board directly for instructions.
On Tuesday, the polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for those qualified and registered voters in Morris.
