Oklahoma is one of the states that holds primary elections six to nine months before a presidential election. According to the National Conference of State Legislators, Oklahoma hosts partially closed primary elections, which means that "state law permits political parties to choose whether to allow unaffiliated voters or voters not registered with the party to participate in their nominating contests before each election cycle."
