OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma voters wanting to change their party affiliation or their address can now do so online for the first time starting Monday.
The Oklahoman reports that the Oklahoma State Election Board is releasing a new online form for registered voters to update their information. Voters can use the form to change their affiliation to one of the state’s three recognized political parties or to be independent. They can also update their residential or mailing address as long as it’s within the same county.
Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says it’s a good first step toward implementing the state’s online voter registration system. Lawmakers authorized the State Election Board in 2015 to create the system allowing residents to register online instead of filling out a paper form. The system won’t be available until at least 2020.
