    Residents living in the McLoud School District who want to vote in the October school bond election must make application to register to vote by Friday.
    Pottawatomie County Election Board Secretary Diana Knight said Friday is the last day to apply and still be eligible to vote in the McLoud special bond election, which is scheduled for Oct. 8.
    The McLoud School board is asking residents to approve $625,000 in transportation bonds for the purchase of new buses.
    Those wanting to register to vote can do so in person, or by mail.
    Knight said those who are United States citizens, residents of Oklahoma, and at least 18 years old may apply to become registered voters.
    Those who have never registered or who are not currently registered in the county of their residence, or those needing to change their registration information, may apply by filling out and mailing an Oklahoma Voter Registration Application form in time for it to be postmarked no later than midnight Friday, Sept. 13.
    Knight said that applications postmarked after that time still will be accepted and processed, but the applications will not be approved until after the Oct. 8 election.
    The County Election Board responds in writing to every person who submits an application for voter registration. The response is either a Voter Identification Card listing the new voter's precinct number and polling place location or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved.
    Knight said that any person who has submitted a voter registration application and who has not received a response within 30 days should contact the County Election Board office.
    Oklahoma Voter Registration Application forms are available at the County Election Board office located in the county commissioners’ building at 14101 Acme Road in Shawnee, and at most post offices, tag agencies, and public libraries in the county.
    Knight said that applications also are available on the Internet at www.elections.state.ok.us.
