Deadline is today for submitting voter applications

DUNCAN — Individuals who want to vote in the upcoming, May 14, Special Municipal Election for the City of Duncan, have until Friday to apply for voter registration.

The election is for a bond issue of a $9 million streets project proposed by the city.

Persons, 18 years or older may apply to become registered voters. Those who have not been registered in the county of their residence and persons who are registered but who need to change voter registration information 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, April 19, according to Stephens County Election Board Secretary Peggy Winton.

Applications postmarked after that time still will be accepted and processed, but the applications will not be approved until after May 14.

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. Winton 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 County Election Board office located at 101 S. 11th St., Ste. 100, Duncan, and at most post offices, tag agencies, and public libraries in the county. Applications are also available on the Internet at www.elections.ok.gov.
