Update on status of Online Voter Registration: Senate Bill 313, which authorized online voter registration, requires such a system link with the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety's driver's license database to verify information submitted and retrieve a signature. Unfortunately, DPS' computer system cannot currently meet the technical requirements in the law. DPS is upgrading its computer system and will be able to accommodate online voter registration when the new system is in place, however this update is expected to take some time. We expect full online voter registration will be available in 2020. In the meantime, election board officials worked with legislators in 2017 on a bill that authorizes a phase one of online registration, which will allow those already registered to update their address and party affiliation online. We are currently testing that system and expect it will be ready later in 2018. Check back here for further updates as they are available.
In 2015, Senate Bill 313 was adopted by the Oklahoma State Legislature and signed into law by the Governor. This legislation, which takes effect on November 1, 2015, authorizes the Secretary of the Oklahoma State Election Board to develop a secure online system where a citizen with a current and valid Oklahoma driver license or identification card issued by the Department of Public Safety may submit a voter registration application electronically.
An electronic (online) voter registration system will require time to develop and test before it is available to the public. Check back here for updates about the development of online voter registration for Oklahoma.
