Deadline to change party affiliation Monday

MOORE — Oklahomans who want to elect the nominee of a political party in the Primary or Runoff Primary Elections later this year should make sure they are registered in that party no later than Monday, according to Cleveland County Election Board Secretary Bryant Rains.

Changes of political affiliation are prohibited by law during the period beginning April 1 and continuing through August 31 in even-numbered years, Rains said.

Each political party can nominate one candidate per office for the November General Election.  If two or more candidates from the same party file for one office, the party nominee is selected at either the Primary or Runoff Primary Election.

Only voters registered in a political party can vote to select that party's nominees.  Voters not registered in a party (Independents) cannot vote for party candidates in primary elections.  Oklahoma has two recognized political parties in 2014: Republicans and Democrats.  

All registered voters, regardless of political affiliation, can vote for any candidate at the November General Election and for state or local questions at any election.

Applications to register to vote or to change political affiliation are available at the Cleveland County Election Board office, 641 E. Robinson, Suite 200, Norman; post offices; public libraries; state offices providing public assistance; and at most political party and candidate campaign offices.
