OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The deadline is nearing for Oklahomans to register in time to vote in the upcoming presidential primary election.

Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax (ZEER’-iks) says voters who need to register or change their party affiliation or registration information have until Friday to do so in time for the March 1 Presidential Preferential Primary Election.

Voters can download a registration form from the agency’s website or pick one up at county election board offices, post offices, tag agencies or libraries.

This year’s Democratic primary election also is open to registered independents for the first time in modern history. The Oklahoma Democratic Party last year changed its rules to allow independents to vote in Democratic primaries. Independents still can’t vote in Republican primaries.
