Friday last day

to register to vote

Friday is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the Aug. 28 McCord School C-07757, city of Tulsa and federal, state and county runoff primary elections, Osage County Election Board Secretary Kelly Chouteau said.

Chouteau said persons, who are U.S. citizens, residents of Oklahoma, and at least 18 years old, may apply to become registered voters.

Persons who have never been registered to vote before, or who are not currently registered in the county of their residence, and persons who are registered but who need to change their 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.

Chouteau said applications postmarked after that time will still be accepted and processed; however, the applications will not be approved until after Aug. 28.

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.

Chouteau said that any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the Osage County Election Board office at (918) 287-3036 or email OsageCounty@elections.ok.gov.

Oklahoma voter registration application forms are available at the Osage County Election Board ,630 Kihekah Ave. in Pawhuska, and at most post offices, tag agencies, and public libraries in the county.

Chouteau said that applications also are available at www.osage.okcounties.org or the state website, www.elections.ok.gov. Voters can check their registration status at www.ok.gov/elections/Voter_Info/Online_Voter_Tool/.
