Claremore, OK – Rogers County Election Board is currently stuffing 23,000 envelopes. According to Julie Dermody, Secretary of the Rogers County Election Board, around 23,000 Information letters with new Voter ID cards will be mailed out starting next week due to redistricting following the 2020 Census, as well as another 13,000 Voter ID cards for those who have a new Polling location.
The Census occurs every 10 years and is used to redraw lines for elective districts to ensure equal populations between districts. Dermody said “These are the lines we must live with for the next 10 years. The Legislative body designates the lines, we conform to them.” Polling locations are typically within Precinct boundaries. There are a few exceptions, those happen when there are no acceptable venues, or venues are unable to accommodate us for various reasons.
It is important to note that Registered voters must vote at the Polling location where they are assigned. Voters who have changed address are reminded to update their address information with the Election Board. Address update requests can also be made online, you can access the Oklahoma Voter Portal via rogerscountyelectionboard.org
As Rogers County continues to grow, some precincts may need to be split in the future, when that happens new Voter ID cards will be mailed.
There are 3 methods you can choose from to cast your ballot – vote a mail/absentee ballot, vote during Early Voting, or vote on Election Day – your choice!
Deadline for Voter Registration changes for the June Primary is June 3. Last day to request an absentee ballot is June 13. Election Day is June 28th.
