Oklahomans hoping to take part in the June 18 primary election must register to vote by the end of this week before the deadline approaches.

The deadline to register is on Friday, May 24. Citizens will be able to register online, by mail, or in person at your county's election board. Anyone voting absentee will need to request a ballot by June 3.

According to the Election Board, applications are accepted at any time of the year but must be received at least 25 days before an election to participate in that election. To register, you'll need a valid Oklahoma ID in the form of a driver's license or Real ID.

Both can be obtained by an approved Licensed Operator, or tag agency if you are a U.S. Citizen or a permanent resident.
