Potential voters must register now for May

According to information supplied by Election Secretary Vickie Turner, Friday, April 13, 2007 is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the special bond election for the Felt Public Schools on May 8, 2007.

Turner said that U.S. citizens, 18-years of age, who are Oklahoma residents, may apply to become a registered voter.

Individuals who have never registered, or who are not currently registered in the county of their residence, and those who are registered, but need to change their information, may register, or change their name or address by filling out a registration form. If mailed, it must be postmarked before April 13.

Turner said applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not approved until after the May 8 election.

The election board will respond in writing to each applicant. That response will either be a voterís ID card with precinct and polling place, or a letter explaining the reason(s) the application wasnít approved.

Anyone who has made application and not received a response within 30 days should contact the County Election Board Office.

Voterís forms are available at the Election Board Office in the courthouse basement, the holder on the door; applications are also available at the tag office.
