Friday, Jan. 16 is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the Feb. 10 annual school elections, Oklahoma County Election Board Secretary Doug Sanderson said this week. Persons who are United States citizens, residents of Oklahoma and at least 18 years old may apply to become registered voters. Persons who have never been registered to vote before or who are not currently registered in the county of their residence and persons who are registered but need to change their registration information may apply to register or to change their name, address or political affiliation by filling out and mailing an Oklahoma Voter Registration Application form in time for it to be postmarked no later than midnight Jan. 16. Applications postmarked after that time still will be accepted and processed, but the application will not be approved until after Feb. 10. The County Election Board will respond in writing to each person who submits an application for voter registration. The response will be either a Voter Identification Card listing the new voter’’s precinct number and polling 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. Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the County Election Board office.
