Voter registration deadline Oct. 14


Special to the Altus Times



Friday is the last day to apply for voter registration for the Nov. 8 general election, Jackson County Election Board Secretary Jennifer L. Wilson said.

According to Wilson, those 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 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.

Wilson said applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after Nov. 8.

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.

Wilson 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 Jackson County Election Board office, 101 N. Main St., Room 105 in Altus; and at most post offices, license tag agencies, public libraries and online www.elections.ok.gov.
