Absentee ballots for Inola school election available on Sept. 4

CLAREMORE —

Voters in Rogers County who want to have absentee ballots mailed to them for the Sept. 10 Inola Public Schools Special Election-Proposition should apply now, said Rogers County Election Board Secretary Julie Dermody.  
Although the County Election Board can accept applications for absentee ballots until 5 p.m. on Sept. 4, Dermody urged voters who want to vote by absentee ballot to apply early.
Absentee ballot application forms are available at the County Election Board, t 415 W. 1st St. in Claremore.
The absentee ballot application forms also can be downloaded and printed from the Internet at www.elections.state.ok.us.
“At least two mail transactions must be made,” Dermody said. “The County Election Board must mail the ballots to the voter and the voter must return the voted ballots by mail.”  
Ballots must be in the hands of the  Election Board by 7 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.
Dermody said that any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in any election in which he or she is eligible to vote.  However, a voter must be registered and reside at an address within the geographical boundaries of a school district or a municipality to be eligible to vote in school district or municipal elections.  It is not necessary to give a reason---or excuse---for voting absentee.  “While anyone can vote absentee without giving a reason, the law still provides several excuses, and it is to the advantage of some voters to use one of them,” Dermody said.  By stating one of the following reasons on their applications, these voters can activate some special conditions that make it easier for them to use absentee ballots.  The reasons are:
• Voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may vote absentee.  They may apply only by mail, by fax, or by telegraph.
