In addition to the effects of COVID-19, some parts of the state, including the Oklahoma City metro, remain without electrical power after last week’s ice storm. OG&E has promised to supply generators to polling places without electricity.
"The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, Oklahoma State Election Board and OG&E report that all polling locations have power for today’s election," officials said in an email early Tuesday. "There are a limited number of polling locations using generator power and OG&E and ODEMHS have back-up generators available if an additional outage occurs today."
