CLAREMORE —

The last day to register is Thursday and persons who are United States citizens, residents of Oklahoma and at least 18 years of age may apply to become registered voters, according to Election Board Secretary Julie Dermody.

Applications postmarked after that date will be accepted, but those voters will not be eligible to vote in the May 14 Special Election, according to Dermody.
