For the first time, many Oklahoma voters will now be able to update some of their basic voter registration information online.
The first phase of online voter registration, which was operational Monday, allows Oklahomans to update their address or party affiliation online, said Paul Ziriax, election board secretary, in a statement.
Voters, however, must be already registered and have an address change within their current county in order to use the online service. Oklahomans who relocate to another county, change their name or who plan to register for the first time must still complete the paper form for a few more years, he said.
“Already registered voters who are changing their information, that accounts for a good portion of the registrations we receive,” said elections spokesman Bryan Dean.
As of December, 37 other states already offered online registration, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
