There is less than a month until the November elections. If you haven't registered yet you're running out of time.

This Friday the 13th is the last day eligible voters can register to vote for the state and county general elections next month.

If you've moved, changed your name or party affiliation since the last election you need to register again. You can pick up a registration form at the Tulsa County Election Board, local Tag Agencies and most public libraries and post offices.

You can mail in your forms, but they need to be post marked by Friday at midnight.

Gene Pace is the Tulsa County Election Board Secretary says 20-percent of eligible voters have not registered. “Oklahoma has I think probably as good of a registration and voting record as anybody in the country, always room until we get to 100-percent."

Each person that submits an application will either receive a voter identification card or a letter that explains why he or she was not approved.

If you haven't received either after a few weeks of submitting your application, contact your local County Election Board office.

You just need to know your drivers license or social security number.
