What you need to know

•Edmond residents who want to register to vote must be at least 18 and be a U.S. citizen and resident of Oklahoma.

•Voter registration applications are available at the county election board, post offices, tag agencies, libraries and other public locations.

•Applicants must sign and date the oath printed on the form.

•If you need to change your name, address or political affiliation, you must fill out another application.

Changing registration

•You can change your registration at any time with one exception. You cannot change your political affiliation from April 1 through Aug. 31 during an even-numbered year.

•The last day on which you can change your political affiliation before the closed period is March 31. The first day on which you can change your political affiliation after the closed period is Sept. 1.

•You can mail your voter registration application to the state election board. The card is already addressed but needs a first-class postage stamp.

•If you fill out your voter registration application form at a tag agency when you get your driver's license or when you apply for assistance at a government agency, the agency will mail the form for you.

•You do not become a registered voter until the county election board has approved your application and mailed a voter identification card. The voter identification card lists your polling place.

Closed primary system

•Oklahoma has a closed primary system. Only voters who are registered members of a recognized political party can vote for the party's candidates in primary and runoff primary elections.

•Registered independent voters may be eligible to vote in party primaries and runoff primaries if authorized by the party.

•Nonpartisan judicial offices, state questions and county questions often are included in primary elections. All registered voters, including independents, are entitled to receive those ballots.

•At general elections, all voters receive the same ballot and can vote for any candidate or question on the ballot.

•You can submit your voter registration application form any time, but voter identification cards cannot be issued during the 24 days before an election.

•If your registration application is received by the county election board during the 24 days before an election, you will not receive your voter identification card until after the election.
