Early voting begins today; Stonewall poll changed

(Continued)

Ada —

The law says, “Any item used for proof of identity for voting must have been issued by the federal government, the state of Oklahoma or a federally recognized tribal government.”  The proof of identity must show the name of the person to whom it was issued, the person’s photograph and an expiration date after the election date.

Voters may also use the voter identification card they received by mail when they registered to vote. Also, state identification cards issued to people who are 65 or older. They do not have expiration dates, but they are valid proof of identity for voting.

Here’s a sample list of acceptable identification:

• A current unexpired driver’s license with the same name as the name listed on the voter registration rolls.

• A state ID card issued to people who are 65 or older. They do not have expiration dates but are valid proof of identity for voting.

• A Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood card.

• A voter registration card with the same name as it appears in the precinct registry.

• A military ID card.

Anyone who is currently registered and needs a new voter registration card can contact the election board at 332-4534 for a new card.

It is too late to register to vote for the first time or to change an address to be eligible to vote in Tuesday’s election. However, anyone who is unsure of how they are listed on the voter registration rolls can call the election board or go to the state election board website at www.elections.ok.gov and check their registration information.

3) Polling place locator: People who don’t remember where they go to vote can find that information on the polling place locator on the State Election Board’s website. The locator is available at www.elections.ok.gov in the “Frequently Asked Questions” and “Voter Registration” sections.
