Some Marlow Voters Affected by New Precinct Boundaries
Some voters in Stephens County will have a new polling place as a result of recent changes to precinct boundaries, Angela Dunagan, Stephens County Election Board Secretary announced this week.
Dunagan said the changes were necessary because of changes to State House and Senate district boundaries which occur every 10 years after the census. Dunagan gave an example of one precinct that was split into four different sections after the new district lines were drawn. Some sections were absorbed into a nearby precinct while others were made into a new precinct. Some other changes were necessary to reduce the number of voters in some of the larger precincts to help reduce the voter lines in the large elections, and to accommodate growth over the next 10 years. A third precinct was added to the Marlow area for these reasons.
Dunagan said new Voter Identification cards, along with polling place information, have been mailed to all voters affected by the new precinct lines. Voters can also use the OK Voter Portal oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp to find their polling place information. Polling place changes will become effective immediately.
All precinct numbers and polling place locations in the county since the adoption of the new precinct boundary lines are listed below. Voters are assigned to precincts according to their residence address, not in relation to how close the residence is to a particular polling place.
