New Election Board service lets voters sign up for e-mail and text reminders of upcoming elections

(Oklahoma City) – A new service launched this week will allow voters to sign up for e-mail or text messages reminding them about upcoming elections in their county, Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said Thursday.

The GovDelivery service will also let voters sign up for reminders to renew their annual absentee ballot requests, receive press releases and get a digest of the agency’s official Twitter feed.

To sign up, voters can visit the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website at www.elections.ok.gov. An overlay will pop up allowing website visitors to sign up for the service. Voters can also sign up via a permanent request box on the site’s home page.

Subscribers can choose to receive e-mail or text alerts. To get election reminders, a voter will also need to list their county of residence. A few days before each election, an alert will be sent to subscribers in any county that is having an election. The alert will include links to the board’s upcoming elections web page, where they can view the elections taking place in their county, and to the Online Voter Tool, which will allow the voter to see a sample ballot if they are eligible to vote in the election.

“This is the latest online tool we’ve developed to help Oklahoma voters,” Ziriax said. “Along with the Online Voter Tool and the online absentee ballot request form, this service makes it easier than ever to make sure your vote gets cast and counted on Election Day.”

To sign up for notifications from the Oklahoma State Election Board or for any other information about Oklahoma elections, visit www.elections.ok.gov.
