Oklahoma State Election Board fact checks viral ballot video
FILE - Oklahoma absentee ballots

TULSA, Okla. — A controversial viral video on social media caught the attention of the Oklahoma State Election Board on Monday after days of divisiveness over the integrity of last week’s election.

The video is from a Tulsa County precinct and shows what the state election board called “spoiled ballots" where a voter marked more than one option in a race.

Those spoiled ballots are returned to the precinct clerk and destroyed, and the voter is to be given a new ballot to use.

The state election board tweeted screenshots from the video from Precinct 469/457 and an affidavit signed by voters before their ballots were destroyed.

Therefore the ballots shown in the video were already deemed invalid, and the voters they belonged to were given replacements.
