Voter registration surges as deadline nears
Oklahoma’s voter rolls have surged since January, with nearly 2.1 million voters now registered as of the end of September, State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said Friday.
Official statistics from the end of September show total voter registration in the state saw a net increase of 76,256 from January 15 to September 30 this year, with 2,092,413 total registered voters in the state.
The deadline to register for the 2018 General Election is Friday, Oct. 12.
“As Oklahoma’s chief election official, I am pleased to see this increase in the voter rolls,” Ziriax said. “There is still plenty of time to register to vote for the General Election. I am hopeful this points to a larger voter turnout compared to the 2014 gubernatorial election.”
