To be eligible to serve as a precinct official, one must be a registered voter of the county in which he or she will serve and demonstrate competence to perform his or her duties. (See 26 O.S. § 2-131)
Under current state law, the appointment of precinct officials is the responsibility of the county election board secretary. (See 26 O.S. § 2-124)
