Voter registration deadline for City Council elections fast approaching

By Chamber Staff / Inside OKC / January 16, 2019

Whether you have lived in Oklahoma City your whole life or just moved here, being active in local government and voting is one of the most important things you can do. With a handful of Oklahoma City Council elections coming on Feb. 12, now is a great time to register.

The deadline to register to vote in the next election is Jan. 18. To get your voter registration form visit the election board website. At the site, you can also find your polling location, request an absentee ballot (deadline is 5 p.m. Feb. 6) and view a sample ballot. Early voting will be held Thursday, Feb. 7 and Friday, Feb. 8 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

The upcoming election will decide who will serve the citizens of Wards 2, 5, 6 and 8. You can find a Ward map here if you aren’t sure what Ward you live in.

Also it is important to remember that even though your mailing address might be in Yukon, Edmond or another community, you may still actually live in Oklahoma City and are eligible to register. If you pay your trash bill to the City of Oklahoma City odds are you can vote.
