Statewide

Voter signup approaches

Voters have until Friday to register to vote in the June 24 primary election, Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said. Voter registration forms can be downloaded from the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website at www.ok.gov/elections. They also are available at county election boards, post offices, tag agencies, libraries and other public locations. Voters must register in person or mail their registration forms, postmarked before the deadline. Sample ballots are available at county election boards and can be viewed online using the Oklahoma State Election Board’s Online Voter Tool. The tool also allows voters to check their registration information and polling place and track absentee ballots.

OKLAHOMA CITY

Campaign

set to begin

Catholic Charities will formally kick off its new Crossbeams Capital Campaign at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Oklahoma City Golf and Club, 7000 NW Grand Blvd. in Nichols Hills. The campaign will fund Catholic Charities’ new main services building that will be constructed at the corner of NW 12 and Classen Boulevard. The campaign is co-chaired by community leaders, philanthropist Judy Love and Bob Ross, Inasmuch Foundation president and chief executive officer. The name for the effort refers to Catholic Charities’ position at the crossroads of church and community, the literal representation of structural support and, most importantly, the crossbeams of the cross of Christ which form the foundation of Catholic Charities’ mission to serve and will be a visible element of the building’s design.
