Voters Encouraged to Update Registration

With upcoming State Question 820 Election on March 7, 2023, and April 4, 2023 School Board and Municipal Elections right around the corner, Kay County Election Board Secretary Carol Leaming is encouraging all registered voters to verify their voting information using the State Election Board’s OK Voter Portal.

“If it’s been a while since you’ve voted or you’ve moved or changed your name, now is the time to make sure your registration information is up-to-date. We want everyone to have a positive experience at the polls,” Leaming said.

The OK Voter Portal can be found at oklahoma.gov/elections.ovp.

Leaming said voters who have moved to another county or changed their name, will need to submit a new Voter Registration Application. Applications are available at the County Election or online at oklahoma.gov/elections. Most other changes such as mailing address or party affiliation can be made online at oklahoma.gov/elections.ovp.

February 10, 2023 is the last day to apply for voter registration for the March 7, 2023 Election 

 March 10, 2023 is the last day to apply for voter registration for the April 4, 2023 Election.  

Changes must be submitted no later than 25 days before and election. Changes submitted after the deadline will be processed immediately following the election. Applicants whose registration forms are accepted will be mailed a new Voter Identification Card. Applications whose registration forms are rejected will be notified in writing.

Leaming said voters who encounter an issue with their registration information on Election Day can always cast a provisional ballot with a signed affidavit. Provisional ballots must verified and counted before election results are certified.
