Friday, Feb. 5, is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the March 2, special county and special Goodland School election, Choctaw County Election Board Secretary Darlene Rickman said.
Rickman said that persons who are United States 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, Feb. 5.
Rickman said that applications postmarked after that time still will be accepted and processed, but the applications will not be approved until after March 2.
The County Election Board responds in writing to every person who submits an application for voter registration. Rickman 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 300 E. Duke, Hugo, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Rickman said that applications are also available on the Internet at www. elections.state.ok.us.
