Polling locations deal with unprepared voters

CHICKASHA — Phones are ringing off the hook at the Grady County Election Board in Chickasha.

Polls are open until 7 p.m. and the lack of preparation from voters is causing hours worth of phone calls for the ladies at the election board office.

"It seems like no one knows where to vote," Susan Turner, secretary at the Grady County Election Board said. "There are so many people calling and checking."

To identify where your voting location is, visit www.ok.gov/elections then provide the information required, such as your last name, birth date and zip code.

Besides not knowing where to vote, some citizens have failed to change their address, last name and other information that limits their ability to vote.

"They would have needed to change things like address or maiden name by Oct. 12," Turner said.

Some voters have forgotten that they need to reregister to vote if they have been inactive for the past eight years, Turner explained.

"Polls close at seven, but we'll be here until we're done," Turner said. "Could be nine o'clock, could be 10. If there is a line, we'll wait."
