The Oklahoma House of Representatives approved a bill to help blind and visually impaired Oklahomans with absentee ballots.

HB1711 would allow electronic absentee ballots to be sent to those with vision problems. The ballot would be filled out electronically, before being printed off and mailed in with the required documentation.

The bill would also allow for those needing the special ballot to request assistance from another person if needed.

The bill will now head to the Senate.
