OKLAHOMA – Voting: Some call it a civic duty, others a waste of time, but if you want to have your say at the ballot box there are a few things you need to know.

Rules vary widely from state-to-state, and some requirements, like voter ID laws, are still being hashed out in the courts.

If you are interested in voting, find out how to register in Oklahoma:

  • How to register: You can mail your form to the Oklahoma State Election Board. You can also fill it out at a tag agency or a government assistance agency, and they will turn it in for you. More information is available here.
  • When you have to register by: October 14
  • Qualifications for registration: You must be a US citizen, living in Oklahoma and 18 to register. Convicted felons can register to vote after a period of time equal to the time of the original sentence. You cannot register if you have been judged “incapacitated.”
  • Also: According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, you must provide an ID or your voter registration card, otherwise you have to use a provisional ballot.
