Various elections on February 13th

Annual School Elections for Tulsa Public Schools District 4, Broken Arrow Public Schools District 3 and Collinsville Public Schools Position 3, as well as Special Proposition Elections for Collinsville Public Schools, Jenks Public Schools, Union Public Schools, and the City of Skiatook are set for February 13.

Other Elections on February 13 include Municipal Elections for the City of Owasso Ward 2 and the City of Sand Springs Ward 6, Tulsa County Election Board Secretary Gwen Freeman said.

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.  Freeman 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.

Although the County Election Board can accept applications for absentee ballots until 5 p.m. on February 7, Freeman urged voters who want to vote by absentee ballot to apply early.

“At least two mail transactions must be made,” Freeman said. “The County Election Board must mail the ballots to the voter and the voter must return the voted ballots by mail.”

Ballots must be in the hands of County Election Board officials by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted. Freeman said any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in any election in which he/she is eligible to vote. It is not necessary to give a reason for voting absentee. Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the County Election Board office at 555 N. Denver, and at most post offices, tag agencies and public libraries in the county. Applications also are available at www.elections.ok.gov.
