Voters have until Wednesday, Aug. 20 to request an absentee ballot for the Aug. 26 Runoff Primary Election, Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said. Applications for absentee ballots can be downloaded from the Oklahoma State Election Board or picked up at any of the state's 77 county election boards. Completed absentee ballots must be received by mail at county election boards by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 26. Those who want to vote early in person can do so Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

The days for early voting are changing inĀ Oklahoma, thanks to a new state law.

Beginning this week, voters can cast in-person absentee ballots at their county election board offices on Thursday and Friday before an election.

Early voting on Saturdays will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., but only for state and federal elections. Because next week's election is a special election, not state or federal, there will be no early voting on Saturday.

Previously, early voting days were Friday, Saturday and Monday. The new state law took effect last week.
