This week is it for voter deadline

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Friday, Jan. 17 is the deadline — the last day to get registered to vote or update voter information for those wanting to cast a ballot in two Garvin County towns’ school board races.

The Feb. 11 election features three candidates going for one Pauls Valley Board of Education office, while in Maysville voters will consider races for two different school board posts.

Doylene Cunningham, secretary for the Garvin County Election Board, says persons who are United States citizens, residents of Oklahoma and at least 18 years old may apply to become registered voters.

These individuals may apply to register or to change name, address or political affiliation. Specifically they can include:

• Persons who have never been registered to vote before.

• Voters who are not currently registered in the county of their residence.

• Persons who are registered but who need to change their registration information.

Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the county Election Board office in the Garvin County Courthouse in PV, at tag agencies or can be downloaded from www.ok.gov/elections online.

A trio of candidates are seeking the office in Pauls Valley, including incumbent Joe Don Looney.

Looney, while looking for a new five-year term, is being challenged by Brandi Harris and Randy McGee.

The only other PV board office scheduled to be on the ballot has already gone to Craig Ensey, who was unopposed for the unexpired term of the office formerly held by Michelle Wood.

Ensey was appointed to the office in early October to essentially serve out this first year of Wood’s full five-year term.

Without any opposition Ensey earned the office for the remainder of the term.

In Maysville there are two board races on the ballot.

For the No. 4 office on Maysville’s school board Vickie Foraker and Cindy Wilmot are running for a five-year term.

Tyler W. Dean and Heidi Gamble are the candidates for the unexpired term of Maysville’s No. 2 office.

All the remaining school districts in Garvin County had school board offices filled by candidates who were unopposed for their respective seats in early December.

Voters should also remember the deadline to request mailed absentee ballots for the school elections is Wednesday, Feb. 5.

In-person absentee voting will be available throughout Thursday and Friday, Feb. 6-7 at the county Election Board office.
