Time to register


July 31 is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the August 25 Republican runoff primary for State Senate District 43.

On the ballot will be incumbent Paul Scott and Jessica Garvin.

Scott fell 14 votes shy of winning the Republican nomination in the June 30 primary.

The runoff winner will face Democrat candidate Terri Reimer in the general election on November 6.

McClain County Election Board Secretary Karen Haley said 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 July 31.

Haley said applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after August 25.

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.

Haley said anyone who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the County Election Board office.

Voter registration applications are available at the County Election Board office located at 121 N Second Avenue, Purcell, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Applications also are available at www.elections.ok.gov.
