Each political party can nominate one candidate per office for the November general election. If two or more candidates from the same party file for one office, the party nominee is selected at either the primary or runoff primary election.
Only voters registered in a political party can vote to select that party’s nominees. Voters not registered in a party (Independents) cannot vote for party candidates in primary elections. Oklahoma has two recognized political parties in 2014: Republicans and Democrats.
All registered voters, regardless of political affiliation, can vote for any candidate at the November General Election and for state or local questions at any election.
Applications to register to vote or to change political affiliation are available at the Cleveland County Election Board office, 641 E. Robinson St., Suite 200, Norman; post offices, public libraries, state offices providing public assistance, and at most political party and candidate campaign offices.
