Early voting starts 9-7-2023

Early voting for the Sept. 12 elections in the Heavener, Panama and McCurtain School Districts in LeFlore County starts Thursday.

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.

LeFlore County election board secretary Sharon Steele said early voting is open to all voters.

“You do not need to provide an excuse to vote early,” she said. “Oklahoma allows early voting for all elections conducted through the 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 available Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the county election board office at 103 North Church Street in Poteau. Steele said early voting is not available at polling locations.

The LeFlore County election board is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call (918) 647-3701 or email leflorecounty@elections.ok.gov.
