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, 18th January.
Limon said that applications postmarked after that time still will be accepted and processed, but the applications will not be approved until after 12th February 2013.
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. Limon said that any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the County Election Board office.
Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the County Election Board office located at 301 N. Main St. (Courthouse Annex) in Guymon, OK, and at most post offices, tag agencies, and public libraries in the county. Limon said that applications also are available on the Internet at www.elections.ok.gov.
