Personally Identifiable Data Notice
Voter registration records are considered public records under the Oklahoma Open Records Act [51 O.S., §§ 24A.1 – 24A.31].
Voter records can be accessed through the OK Voter Portal (date of birth required), the OK Election Data Warehouse (registration required), or by contacting the voter’s County Election Board or State Election Board. Sufficient information must be supplied to county and state employees to make a match in the system.
Voter Privacy Programs
While voter information is public information under the Oklahoma Open Records Act, certain voters may qualify to be removed from the public record. You will find more information on our Voter Privacy Programs page.
The State Election Board and County Election Boards are required by law to collect certain personally identifiable data from candidates for office. (See 26 O.S. § 5-111.) By law, all information provided by a candidate on a Declaration of Candidacy – except a candidate’s residence address and mailing address – is considered a public record.
3. The candidate's place of residence and mailing address.*
8. A voter registration verification form obtained from the Election Board.
10. The candidate's criminal history, if any.
11. OPTIONAL: A telephone number, email address and website address, if provided by the candidate.
Declarations of Candidacy filed with the Secretary of the State Election Board are physically stored at the State Election Board and may be provided upon request with the candidate’s residence address and mailing address redacted. Declarations of Candidacy filed with the secretary of a county election board are physically stored at that county election board and may be provided upon request with the candidate’s residence address and mailing address redacted.
*The address of residence and the mailing address of a candidate provided on a Declaration of Candidacy shall be verified by the secretary of the election board with whom the Declaration was filed and shall be kept confidential; provided, however, such address information shall be provided to a candidate, candidate representative, or other lawful authority in anticipation of or as part of a contest of candidacy or contest of an election as provided for in this title or as part of a petition challenge as provided by law.
Absentee Voter Information
The State Election Board and County Election Boards are required by law to collect certain personally identifiable data from voters applying for an absentee ballot. (See 26 O.S. § 14-105.)
1. Name, date of birth, Oklahoma driver's license number/state ID number or the last four digits of the applicant's Social Security number*, address of registration, mailing address for the absentee ballot, daytime phone (optional), email address (optional), and fax number (optional, for uniformed services/overseas voters only).
*State law requires voters to provide an identification number that matches the identification number provided on their voter registration record. Voters who do not know which number they used on their voter registration, may provide both. Voters who do not have an identification number on file, may apply for an absentee ballot by submitting a written request only.
2. The voter's indication of which type of absentee ballot is being requested (e.g., regular, nursing home/veteran center, physically incapacitated, caregiver for physically incapacitated person, Uniformed Services/overseas, emergency responder).
By law, a list of all persons who have requested an absentee ballot is made public at each election. Absentee ballot applications and the information provided on such applications are considered a public record. Pursuant to law, the email address of a Uniformed Services or overseas voter is not a public record.
