Less than a week remains for registered voters in Osage County to apply for absentee ballots to be mailed to them for the February 10 Pawhuska I2 Annual School Election, County Election Board Secretary Andrea Conner said.

Applications for absentee ballots must be in the hands of the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 4, to be processed.

Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Conner said. Absentee voters may apply in person at the County Election Board office or may send their applications by mail, fax, or e-mail. Voters also may apply for absentee ballots for the following reasons:

Sample ballots can be viewed at the Election Board office, located at 630 Kihekah Ave. in Pawhuska, during regular office hours, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sample ballots also will be posted outside every precinct polling place on Tuesday so that voters can review them before casting their votes.
