Constitution

369,695 absentee ballots were cast in Oklahoma’s 2020 election cycle. Overall 1,560,699 ballots were cast in the 2020 election, putting overall state turnout at about 69.34%. The state swung heavily for incumbent Donald Trump, who won its 7 electoral votes with 65.37% of the popular vote. Oklahoma has consistently voted for Republican presidential candidates since 1968.

Oklahoma has a bicameral legislature with 48 senators and 101 representatives. The legislature is in session annually from February to May, and Republicans have held the majority in both chambers since 2006. Okalhoma’s governor, Kevin Stitt (R), is up for re-election in 2023.

Election Integrity

In the wake of the 2020 elections and resulting lack of confidence in the outcome, state legislatures across the country reviewed their election laws and proposed and/or enacted certain modifications to existing law. While our country remains bitterly divided, a battle is taking place as to whether these laws suppress the vote or expand access to the ballot box. Many believe claims of voter suppression from the Left are part of a larger effort to federalize our elections. But the U.S. Constitution grants state legislatures authority to establish state election laws.
