Oklahoma Student Voter Info

Students who lived in Oklahoma before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Oklahoma voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Oklahoma address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students attending school in Oklahoma should be able to register and vote at their school address if they are a “bona fide” resident of their college town. Under Oklahoma law, the most important factor in determining whether you are a “bona fide” resident for voting purposes is your intent to leave your old home and establish a new one. If you move to school intending to make a home there and do not intend to move back to the place you came from (i.e., your parents’ home), you should be able to establish residency in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Ex-Offender Voter Info

Individuals convicted of a felony are ineligible to vote while incarcerated, on parole, or on probation. Voting rights are automatically restored upon completion of all supervised release. Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.
