(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma County election officials are looking for about 75,000 voters whose voter registration cards have been returned.

Every registered voter in the county is to get a new card this year because of redistricting and new precinct lines. About 380-thousand were mailed, but about 75-thousand were returned marked ``return to sender.''

Election Board Secretary Mike Clingman says voters who don't have their cards may not be able to find their polling place for the August 27th primary election. There are 60 new polling places and all the county's 295 precincts have new numbers.

Voters who haven't received a new registration card should contact the Election board.

Voters must register by August 2nd to vote in the primary.
