P.M. UPDATE: Friday last day to register to vote in Feb. 12

— Friday is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the Feb. 12, Fort Gibson, Braggs, Hilldale, Haskell and Midway school districts’ annual school elections, said Muskogee County Election Board Secretary Kelly Beach.

Beach said individuals who are U.S. citizens, Oklahoma residents and 18 years or older may apply to become registered voters.

Those who have never registered to vote or who are not registered in the county of their residence may apply by filling out and mailing an Oklahoma voter registration application. Registered voters who need to change their registration information may use the same form.

All applications must be postmarked no later than midnight Friday in order to be processed and registered in time to vote in the Feb. 12 elections. Applications postmarked after that will be accepted and processed but will not be approved until after Feb. 12.

Beach said county election officials respond in writing to every person who submits an application for voter registration. The response is either a voter identification card or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved.

Beach said that any person who submits a voter registration application and does not receive a response within 30 days should contact the county election office.

Voter registration applications are available at the Muskogee County Election Board, 400 W. Broadway St., Room 120, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Applications are also available at
