Spike in Oklahoma Voter Rolls
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's Election Board secretary says more than 21,000 Oklahoma voters registered to vote last month.
Secretary Paul Ziriax said Monday that there has been a net increase of nearly 68,000 voters since January, including more than 21,000 during September.
The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is Oct. 12.
Ziriax also reported that Democrats still have the most registered voters in Oklahoma, but that Republicans and independents are growing at a faster rate.
As of Sept. 30, Oklahoma had just more than two million registered voters with 46 percent being Democrats, 42 percent Republican and 12 percent independents.
Since January 1st — Republicans have added about 45,000 registered voters while Democrats have added nearly 7,000.
