Time grows short for voters to register for Nov. 2 elections

Cimarron County voters have until Friday, Oct. 8 to register so they may participate in the Nov. 2, national elections, this according to Vicki Turner, Cimarron County Election Secretary.

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

Individuals who have never been registered, or those not currently registered in the county of their residence, or those needing to change their registration information, may apply by filling out and mailing an Oklahoma Voter Registration form so that it may be postmarked before midnight Friday, Oct. 8.

Applications received after that date will be accepted and processed, but the voter will not be able to participate in the Nov. 2 election.

The election board will respond in writing to each applicant submitting a voter's application for registration. The response will either be a Voter's identification card listing the voter's precinct number and polling place location or a letter explaining the reason(s) the application was not approved.

Turner added that any individual who has submitted a voter registration application and hasn't 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 in the basement of the Cimarron County Courthouse.

If the office is closed, forms will be in the holder on the door.

Forms are also available in the Cimarron County Tag Office in the Court House basement.
