Voter registration deadline for Runoff Primary Election approaches

(Oklahoma City) – Voters have until Friday Aug. 1 to register to vote in the Aug. 26 Runoff Primary Election, Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said.

Voter registration forms can be downloaded from the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website at http://elections.ok.gov. They are also available at county election boards, post offices, tag agencies, libraries and some other public locations.

Voters must either register in person or mail their registration forms in and have them postmarked by the deadline.

Democratic voters have two statewide races on the ballot, U.S. Senate and Superintendent of Public Instruction. There are no statewide Republican races on the ballot, however Tulsa County Republicans will choose a District Attorney, and both parties will vote in U.S. House District 5.

There are also several State House and Senate races across the state. Some counties have runoffs for county offices, and there are non-partisan local races on the ballot in some counties.

Oklahoma has a closed primary system, meaning Democrats vote in Democratic primaries, Republicans vote in Republican primaries, and Independent voters can vote in non-partisan races on primary ballots.

Voters can see which races are on the ballot in their county by calling their county election board or by visiting http://elections.ok.govand checking a link for upcoming local elections. State and federal races on the ballot are also listed on the website.
