Time is running out to register to vote in order to be eligible to vote in the November 3 General Election.

Voting officials say 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.

Officials say applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after November 3, 2020.

County Election Board offices 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. Officials say any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact their local County Election Board office.

Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at local County Election Board offices , and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries. Applications also are available at elections.ok.gov.
