Voter Registration Deadline is January 15
Friday, January 15, is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the February 09 elections. Two elections will be held in Stephens County on that day Stephens County Election Board Secretary Angela Dunagan said today. The elections include a city mayor race in the City of Marlow and a special bond election for an area affected by the Ringling Public School District.
Dunagan said that persons who are United States citizens, residents of Oklahoma, and at least 17-1/2 years old may apply to become registered voters. Voters must have turned 18 on or before election day to be eligible to vote.
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, January 15.
Dunagan said applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after February 09.
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. Dunagan said 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 located at 101 South 11th Street, Suite 100, Duncan, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Applications also are available at www.oklahoma.gov/elections .
