Well, its the homestretch in the 2016 election, with in-person, absentee voting getting underway on Thursday. Registered Oklahoma voters who want to vote early and avoid all the hassles of election day may do so Thursday through Saturday at the Comanche County Election Board, which is located in room 206 of the Comanche County Courthouse, 315 SW 5th street, or at any county election board office.

There will be a 2-member bipartisan absentee voting board present and on duty at all election board offices from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and again from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Voters do not have to give a reason for voting absentee, but they will be asked to provide photo identification and will be asked to sign a form swearing they will not vote at their appointing voting precinct on the day of the election. Many people are considering absentee voting in order to avoid lengthy lines at traditional polling places on election day, caused by several intricate state questions on the election, as well as local, state and federal elections.

In Lawton alone, there will be two city council races and four charter revisions on the ballot. Voters statewide will also also be asked to comprehend a ballot that includes 7 initiatives, justice retention for the Oklahoma Supreme Court, Court of Criminal Appeals and Court of Civil Appeals. Add to that races for the Third and Fourth U.S. Congressional Districts, the U.S. Senate as well as the presidential election and it is a well-stocked ballot.

Additional information is available by calling the Comanche County Election Board Office at (580) 353-1880.
