October 10 is the last day to apply for voter registration in order to be eligible to vote in the November 4 general election, Sequoyah County Election Board Secretary, Cindy Osburn, said this week. Osburn said that persons who are U.S. citizens, residents of Oklahoma, and at least 18 years old may apply to become registered voters. Persons who have never been registered to vote before or who are not currently registered in the county of their residence and persons who are registered but who need to change their registration information may apply by filling out and mailing an Oklahoma Voter Registration Application form in time for it to be postmarked no later than midnight Oct. 10. Osburn said that applications postmarked after that time will still be accepted and processed, but the applications will not be approved until later. 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 or polling place location or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application was not approved. Osburn said that any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the election board office at 110 E. Creek St. in Sallisaw. Voter Registration Application forms are available at the election board office and at most post offices, tag agents, and public libraries in the county.
