Oklahoma Voters Urged to Confirm Precinct Locations
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma election officials are urging voters to do their homework before they head to voting precincts for the upcoming primary election.
Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says voters should confirm their precinct assignment and polling location before the June 26 primary. Ziriax says many voters were assigned to different polling places following last year's redistricting process for congressional and legislative seats.
He also says voters should know what, if anything, is on the ballot in their precinct prior to election day.
The only statewide election is the Republican primary for a seat on the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. Registered Republicans in every precinct in all 77 counties can vote in that race.
Democrats do not have a statewide primary, but both political parties have primary elections for congressional and legislative seats.
