Oklahoma Election Officials Urge Candidates To File Paperwork Remotely

Mar 23, 2020

Oklahoma election officials are urging potential candidates to file paperwork remotely.

Candidate filing takes place between April 8 to April 10, but the election board is trying to deter candidates from filing in person because of the coronavirus.

Typically, hundreds of candidates from across the state turn up at the state capitol during the three-day candidate filing period.

Instead, the board is hoping they will mail their paperwork with a cashier’s check by private, overnight delivery service to arrive before 5 p.m. on April 10.
