OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A voter registration drive will be held at all Oklahoma City Public Schools high schools on Thursday.
OKCPS is partnering with Generation Citizen and The Oklahoma Civic Learning Coalition to host the drive from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at each high school within the school district.
Trained volunteers will be at each high school to help eligible students and community members who are 17 and a half years old and older register to vote.
The League of Women Voters trained the volunteers in proper procedures, according to OKCPS officials.
“Students who are at least 17½ years old may pre‐register to vote in Oklahoma if they meet all eligibility requirements,” OKCPS officials said.
Individuals who pre‐register cannot vote until they are 18 years old and the their County Election Board approves their application.
A voter ID card will be mailed to applicants whose registration is approved.
Anyone who wants to register to vote can visit their neighborhood OKCPS high school and complete the process.
