voter registration

Friday, July 29, is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the August 23 Runoff Primary Election, Delaware County Election Board Secretary Dixie Smith said today.

Smith said that persons who are United States citizens, residents of Oklahoma, and at least 18 years old may apply to become registered voters.

Those who aren't registered or need to change their registration may apply by filling out and mailing an Oklahoma Voter Registration Application form in time for it to be postmarked no later than midnight Friday, July 29.

Smith said applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after August 23.

The County Election Board responds in writing to every person who submits an application for voter registration. The response is either a voter identification card listing the new voter's precinct number or polling place location or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved. Smith said any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the County Election Board office.

Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the County Election Board office located at 225 S 5th St., Jay, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Applications also are available at
