TULSA, Okla. -

Friday July 31 is the last day to register to vote in the August 25th election, with the biggest race being for Tulsa Mayor.

Election boards across the state have seen a surge in requests for absentee ballots this year and they say it's important to return those as quickly as possible.

In the July primary, more than 3,000 ballots statewide weren't mailed out in time to be counted.

"This beats all records for any presidential election that we've ever had as well. So a lot of folks are jazzed about being able to vote absentee and vote by mail," said Gwen Freeman with the Tulsa County Election Board.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the next election is 5 p.m. on August 18th.
