Friday last day to register for April 1 election

Friday is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in April 1 school board runoff elections.

People who are United States citizens, Oklahoma residents and are at least 18 years of age may apply to become registered voters.

People who have never registered to vote or are not currently registered in their county of residence, and people who are registered but need to change registration information may apply by filling out and mailing a voter registration application form in time for it to be postmarked no later than Friday.

Applications postmarked after Friday will be accepted and processed, but not approved until after the April 1 election, said Muskogee County Election Board Secretary Kelly G. Beach.

The county election board responds in writing to every person who submits an application. The response is either a voter identification card listing the voter’s precinct number and polling place location or a letter explaining why the application was not approved.

Anyone who has submitted an application and has not received a response within 30 days should contact the election office.

Oklahoma voter registration applications are available at most tag agencies, post offices and libraries as well as the Muskogee County Election Board, 400 W. Broadway, room 20. Applications also are available at www.elections.ok.gov.
