Primary elections for federal, state, and county candidates are scheduled for June 18. On Election Day, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Early voting will be held Thursday, June 13, and Friday, June 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 15, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. A list of early voting locations and the election list are available on the State Election Board website.

Voters are reminded that Oklahoma has modified, closed primaries.
In order to participate in a party’s primary election, you must be a registered voter of that party – unless the party opens its primaries to Independent (unaffiliated or “no party”) voters. Oklahoma has three recognized political parties: Republican, Democratic, and Libertarian. 
For the 2024 to 2025 election years, the Democratic Party has chosen to open its primaries to Independents, while the Republican and Libertarian parties have chosen to keep their primaries closed.
Independent voters who wish to vote a Democratic Primary ballot must request one, whether voting in person or by absentee ballot. Independent voters may not vote a Republican Primary ballot or a Libertarian Primary ballot.
A primary election is held if more than one candidate from the same recognized political party files for a single office. Candidates who receive the majority of the votes cast for their office in their respective party’s primary election will advance to the general election. If more than two candidates file and no candidate receives a majority of the votes, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes will advance to the runoff primary election.
If candidates from only one recognized political party file for office, the elected official will be chosen during the primary election or runoff primary election. (Primary election laws apply.) A general election will not be held. More information about primary elections can be found on the State Election Board website at

Kingfisher County Election Board Secretary, Shawna Butts, reminds voters that sample ballots are specific to each person. 
“If the OK Voter Portal indicates that you have no sample ballots available, you are not eligible to vote in an upcoming election. We recommend checking the OK Voter Portal to make sure you have an election before heading to the polls.”
