Frequently Asked Questions
Am I required to show my ID when I vote?
Oklahoma does require that you provide proof of identity by presenting either your Voter Identification card OR a photo ID with your full legal name that does not expire before the election. You may also show any document issued by the United States, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government if it includes your full legal name, a photograph of you, and an expiration date that is later than the election in which you are voting. Check out our 2016 CAIR-OK Muslim Voter Guide for more information.
When can I vote on November 8?
Polling places are open from 7:00AM to 7:00PM on November 8. As long as you are in line by 7:00PM, you are permitted to vote, so stay in line until your ballot is cast!
Can I wear my hijab, kufi, or other religious clothing to vote?
Yes! Your religious clothing is legally protected at your polling place and in the voting booth!
Can I use my phone or take notes with me?
We highly encourage you to take in a list of how you plan to vote – there’s even a sample ballot worksheet in our 2016 CAIR-OK Muslim Voter Guide that you can use for exactly this purpose! Poll workers can occasionally be picky about voters using their cell phones, so we recommend that if you do take notes, you take handwritten ones and keep your cell phone put away until you are finished voting!
