Friday, October 9, is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the November 3 General Election. 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 those registered voters who need to change their name, address of residence, or political affiliation may apply by filling out a Voter Registration Application. Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the County Election Board office located at 131 W 13, Ada, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county.

Applications also are available for download at www.elections.ok.gov. Any currently registered voter may make changes to address of residence in the county or to political affiliation through the OK Voter Portal also located at www.elections.ok.gov.

A voter may mail an Oklahoma Voter Registration Application form in time for it to be postmarked no later than midnight Friday, October 9. Applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after November 3.

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 and polling place location or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved.

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.
