State election board encouraging citizens to register, update voter information
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma State Election Board is encouraging all eligible citizens to register to vote in honor of National Voter Registration Day.
“It’s our civic duty to vote and registering is the first step. National Voter Registration Day is a great reminder that we all have a responsibility to register to vote in our representative democracy. If you’re already registered to vote, now is the perfect time to verify your registration information or confirm your polling place,” Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said.
Voter registration applications are available at county election boards or can be downloaded from the State Election Board website.
