There have been several changes in precinct lines and polling locations due to the process of redistricting. Voter identification cards for the areas affected are currently being mailed.
To avoid the confusion of going to a polling location and finding their name not listed voters should verify their registration. It is very possible that a voters name would not be listed at the polling location they normally vote at. Reasons for this would be; if they have not voted in a long time, the precinct line or polling location was changed due to redistricting, or they have moved and not filled out a new voter registration application.
The election board encourages voters to visit the state web site www.ok.gov/elections to verify their registrations have the correct information. Voters can print and submit another registration if they do not find correct registration information listed. Voters are always welcome to drop by the office at the corner of 16th and Beech in Durant or call 580-924-3228 to check their registration.
We do not want anyone to miss the opportunity to cast their vote because we were unable to get their ID card to them and they go to a polling location that does not list their name.
