Insurance notice requested
As earthquakes continue to rattle central Oklahoma, state Rep. Mike Shelton on Tuesday announced plans to once again file a bill in the upcoming legislative session that would require insurance companies to notify Oklahomans whether their insurance policies cover earthquake damage.
Shelton, D-Oklahoma City, said he proposed a similar bill in 2012 that would have required such notification when customers purchase or renew their policies, but said the bill failed to make it out of the House Insurance Committee after receiving opposition from insurance lobbyists.
Absentee voting available
Oklahomans desiring to cast in-person absentee ballots in Tuesday's election can do so on Thursday or Friday at their local county election boards.
Because of a new law change, in-person absentee voting on Monday, the day before the election, will no longer be allowed.
