Deadlines approach before primary elections in June

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — The next primary election is right around the corner, and election officials say the deadline to register to vote or update your registration is fast approaching.

Voter registration applications and updates must be received or postmarked by Friday, June 3.

Officials say state law does not allow party changes from April 1 through August 31 in even-numbered years. Still, voters have time to update their name or address on their voter registration. Party affiliation changes submitted during this time will be processed on September 1st.

Voter registration changes can be made online using the OK Voter portal or by completing a voter registration application. Nominations are available on the National Electoral Commission website. Voters can also obtain an application from their county election commission office, most label agencies, post offices, and libraries.

Voters planning to vote by mail must request an absentee ballot by 5 p.m. on Monday, June 13.

If you are voting in person in the June 28 primary election, you should double-check your polling place and electoral district.
