Payne County residents may begin early voting Friday at Payne County Election Board

STILLWATER, Okla. — Early voting starts at 8 a.m. Friday for the Nov. 6 general election.

Payne County registered voters can cast ballots early from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Monday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Payne County Administration Building, 315. W. Sixth Ave., Stillwater.

Tuesday, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at various polling places throughout Payne County.

State Election Board Secretar Paul Ziriax said Oklahoma requires proof of identity for voting.

The state's "voter ID" law requires every Oklahoma voter who votes in person at the precinct polling place or during early voting at the County Election Board to show one proof of identity before receiving the ballot.

There are three acceptable ways for voters to prove their identity, he said. Only one method is required.

The methods are:

• unexpired government-issued photo identification, military ID card or driver's license.

• the voter identification card issued to a voter by a County Election Board

• Sign an affidavit and vote a provisional ballot.
