OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Republican state Sen. David Holt has filed bills to make changes to Oklahoma election laws, including allowing voting by mail.

The bills filed Wednesday include one to move Oklahoma to a mail election in 2020.

Another bill would create a “top two” system in which all candidates would appear on the ballot in August and, if none receive more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote getters would advance to the November election.

Other bills would allow online voter registration; unregistered voters who miss a registration deadline could register in person at the county election board during early voting; voters could request to be placed permanently on the absentee voter list; and Wednesdays and Saturday afternoons would be added to early voting days.
