Oklahoma has a closed primary system with exceptions.
However, voter identification cards cannot be issued during the 24 days prior to an election.
If your registration application is received by the county election board during the 24 days before an election, you will not receive your voter identification card until after the election.
You do not become a registered voter until the county election board in the county where you reside has approved your application.
When your application is approved, the county election board will mail a voter identification card to you.
You may change your registration at any time with one exception.
You may not change your political affiliation during the period from April 1 through August 31, inclusive, in any even-numbered year.
The letter will tell you why your application was not approved and explain the steps you need to take to become registered.
You may be able to return the letter with some additional information, or you may need to fill out and send in another voter registration application form.
