Oklahoma voters will have an opportunity to cast ballots in the “Super Tuesday” presidential primary next week.

Twenty-eight Osage County polling sites — including Precinct 107 at Pawhuska’s Presbyterian Church, 101 E. 12th St., and Precinct 108 at Calvary Baptist Church, 620 E. 15th St. in Pawhuska — are to be used for the March 1 voting, said the county’s Election Board Secretary, Andrea Conner. Ballots in the Presidential Preferential Primary Election will be accepted from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 2

Conner offered voters tips on how to make their votes count. She urged voters to take their voter identification cards with them to the polls.

“Your voter ID card (issued by the County Election Board) can help precinct officials find your name in the Precinct Registry, and it may help them resolve the problem if you are not listed in the Registry for some reason,” Connor said.

Alternatively, voters can bring an unexpired photo ID card issued by the U.S. government, the state of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government, she added.

Voters without an ID, or whose names are not found in the Precinct Registry, or voters who disagree with the information shown in the Registry, should always cast a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots are sealed in a special envelope and counted after election day — if the voter’s information can be verified by the County Election Board.

Conner said voters who want to get through the line quickly to vote at mid-morning or mid-afternoon, since those usually are the two slowest periods on election day.

“Anyone who is eligible and in line at the polling place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday will be entitled to vote,” she added.
