Election Day 2020 deadlines approach, find resources here

OK Voting Registration Deadline

September 22nd is National Registration Day. There are Americans every year that find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration or aren’t sure how to register.

There are resources available to help residents be prepared, from staying healthy to knowing your options. KOAM will continue to gather information as we head towards the Presidential Election. In addition to resources here on this page, you can learn where and how to vote at USA.gov and more on the KOAM Elections page.
