OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Democratic state senator from Lawton has filed three bills that he says are designed to ease the voting process for Oklahomans.

Sen. Randy Bass says Senate Bill 279 will expand the period for in-person absentee voting in counties with populations of at least 50,000 during presidential elections while SB 276 would allow a representative of an incapacitated voter, such as a person with special needs, to apply for an absentee ballot in person.

He says the third bill is SB 277 that would widen the pool of people who can work as election judges, clerks, counters and in other precinct positions required for elections.
