Washita Co. Election Board Press Release

December 15th, 2023 is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the January 9th Washita County, county-wide special proposition elections, Washita County Election Board Secretary Assistant Ashton Hymer said today.

Hymer said that persons who are United States Citizens, residents of Oklahoma, and at least 17 ½ years old are eligible to apply for voter registration. However, you must be at least 18 years old to vote.

Applications must be received by the County Election Board or postmarked no later than midnight, December 15th. Applications postmarked after that time will be accepted, but will not be processed until after the January 9th Election. Applications may also be submitted to any motor vehicle agency that is also an official voter registration agency by the submission deadline.

Applicants will be notified in writing when their application has been processed. Approved voters will receive a Voter Identification Card in the mail. Some may receive a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application was not approved. Hymer said those who do not receive a response within 30 days of submitting their application should contact the County Election Board office immediately.

The Washita County Election Board reminds voters that applications must be approved by the County Election Board Secretary in order to vote.

Registered voters who have moved to Washita County from a different county or state will need to complete a new Voter Registration Application in order to be eligible for elections in Washita County. If you have moved within the county and need to update your address, you may make changes online using the OK Voter Portal at oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp or complete a Voter Registration Application.

Voter Registration Applications can be downloaded from the State Election Board website at oklahoma.gov/elections. You may also complete a form at your County Election Board. Most post offices, tag agencies, and public libraries have applications available upon request.

The Washita County Election Board is located at 111 East Main St. Cordell, OK and is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. For questions, please contact the Election Board at 580-832-3658 or washitacounty@elections.ok.gov.
