voter registration

  

According to the Election Laws as outlined in the Constitution of the Kiowa Tribe, The Kiowa Election Commission has initiated the process of voter registration (Article IX, Section 2, (a)). An eligible tribal member will become a Registered Voter in any one of the following ways:


Ø Have participated in any Election held since May 2017 under the newly revised Kiowa Constitution to include any Candidate Election, any Budget Election or any Special Election. If you have voted in any Election since May 2017, you are automatically a Registered Voter and no further registration action is needed.


Ø Have completed a Voter Registration form and submitted it to the Kiowa Election Commission. Forms can be obtained by calling the Election Office at 580-654-6325.


Ø Comes to a Polling Place and completes a Voter Registration form at the time of voting in any election. A tribal member will never be denied their right to vote. Voter Registration will always be available at any Polling Place on the day of an Election.


Ø Each Eligible District 7 Voter with a valid address on file will receive a mail-in ballot at the time of every Election. By signing the Affidavit on the envelope and returning your ballot to be counted on Election Day, you will become a Registered Voter. Once you are a Registered Voter, you will have the option of voting in one of two ways:


Ø A Ballot will be sent to your mailing address at the time of all Elections. Your address must be current with the Enrollment Office in order to receive a ballot by mail. You may mark the ballot and mail it back to the Election Commission as instructed in order for your vote to be counted.


OR


Ø You may come to any established Polling Place on Election Day and vote on site. You do not have to vote at the Polling Place in your assigned District. You may come to vote at any Polling Place that is convenient for you on Election Day.
