Address confirmation notices mailed to 326,000 Oklahoma voters

Address Confirmation Notices Mailed to Oklahoma Voters

(Oklahoma City) – Over the next several weeks, 326,603 registered voters in Oklahoma will receive an Address Confirmation Notice from the State Election Board. The notices are required by state law.

Voters who receive an Address Confirmation Notice have 60 days to respond. However, State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax (pronounced ZEER-icks) is encouraging voters to respond as quickly as possible, “It takes just a couple of minutes to confirm or update your registration. The easiest way to respond is online through the OK Voter Portal. You can also fill out the card and mail it back to us – postage paid,” said Ziriax.

Voters who don’t respond and confirm their address within 60 days will be designated as “inactive,” and are required by law to be removed from the voter rolls after the 2026 General Election. “Inactive” voters can reverse their status and avoid removal by updating their voter registration or by voting in any election on or before the 2026 General Election.

Not every voter will receive an Address Confirmation Notice – only those that meet one of several reasons specified by state law. Voters that may receive an Address Confirmation Notice include those that have had a first-class mailing returned as “undeliverable,” those with a possible duplicate registration in Oklahoma or another state, or those that have not voted or updated their registration through the 2020 and 2022 General Election cycles.

Address Confirmation Notices have played a vital role in keeping voter registration rolls clean and have been required by law for almost three decades. Additionally, election officials conduct monthly maintenance – as required by law – using information provided by authorized sources such as felony convictions from courts and death records from the State Department of Health.  

To learn more about the Address Confirmation Notice process in Oklahoma, see 26 O.S. § 4-120.2 or visit the State Election Board website. Voters with specific questions regarding their registration should contact their County Election Board.
