Friday is the last day to apply for voter registration to be eligible to vote in the April 3 Cameron and Poteau schools special election.
LeFlore County Election Board Secretary Sharon Steele said in a news release those who are United States citizens, Oklahoma residents and at least 18 years old may apply to become registered voters.
Those who are not registered or need to change their registration 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. Applications postmarked after that time will be accepted and processed, but not until after April 3.
The county election board responds in writing to every person who submits an application for voter registration. The response is either a voter identification card listing the new voter's precinct number and polling place location, or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved. Steele said 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 at 103 N. Church St. in Poteau, as well as at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Applications are also available at the Oklahoma State Election Board website.
