Deadline close for absentees

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — It’s not so scary when the deadline is Halloween for voters who want to make their request official for a mailed absentee ballot.

Those ballots mailed to the voter and then back to election officials are for the general election set for Tuesday, Nov. 6.

All voters in Garvin County can make their choices in the big race for U.S. president, one U.S. House race, six state questions and a long list of judges for the Oklahoma Supreme Court and the courts of criminal and civil appeals.

Different parts of the county will also have two state Senate races and four state House offices.

For those still interested in having ballots mailed to them, applications are available at the Garvin County Election Board, located in the county courthouse in Pauls Valley, or online at the website.

The deadline to submit those applications to the Election Board is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31.

On the ballot is a Congressional race for the District 4 office in the U.S. House as Republican incumbent Tom Cole faces Democrat Donna Marie Bebo and Independent R.J. Harris.

One state Senate race is in District 13 as Democrat incumbent Susan Paddack faces Republican Fred E. Smith.

The Senate race in District 43 pits Democrat Mike Fullerton against Republican Corey Brooks.

Among the state House races is Republican incumbent Lisa Billy who seeks another term in the District 42 office while facing a challenge from Democrat Steven Vines.

The other races in the state House are in District 48 with Democrat Brian Spencer going against Republican Patrick Ownbey, District 20 with Democrat Matt Branstetter facing Republican Bobby Cleveland and District 22 with Democrat Doris Anne Row facing Republican Charles A. McCall.

Those missing next week’s deadline will still get the chance to vote early with in-person absentee voting at the Election Board office.

The early in-person voting is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both Friday, Nov. 2 and Monday, Nov. 5 with an 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. time in between on Saturday, Nov. 3.
