OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma's Election Board secretary says more than 21,000 Oklahoma voters registered to vote last month.

Secretary Paul Ziriax (ZEER'-ix) said Monday that there has been a net increase of nearly 68,000 voters since January, including more than 21,000 during September.

The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is Oct. 12.
