Oklahoma 2024 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions:
Democrats   Republicans


6 June 2023: Signed by the Governor. SB 375 was passed by the Oklahoma legislature. The bill would the date of the non-presidential primary from the last Tuesday to the 3rd Tuesday in June.

Oklahoma is a closed primary state. Only registered voters of a political party may vote to select their party's nominees, however, parties are able to allow Independent voters to participate in its primaries and runoffs.

18 December 2023: State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax announced today that he has been notified by the Oklahoma Democratic Party that it will allow Independents to vote in its primaries and runoff primaries during the 2024-2025 election years. Meanwhile, the Oklahoma Republican Party notified the Secretary that it will keep its primaries closed to Independent voters. The Libertarian Party did not formally send a notification; therefore, by default, the Libertarian Party primaries will remain closed as designated by state law.

If no candidate receives at least 50% of the vote in the primary, a runoff will be held between the top two vote-getters.

If a candidate is unopposed in the primary or general election, that office does not appear on the ballot.

Oklahoma does not permit write-ins.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
