|Ward 4 --
My name is
Jerry Pykiet (Pie-kit) and I am running to be your Commissioner.
I would like to take a minute and give you some background on
me so you will have an idea about me and my reasoning for wanting
to be your Commissioner.
I love the town of Collinsville and can see so many great things
that could happen. I started my company Blue Brook Consulting
in 2009. www.bluebrookconsulting.com
My company turns businesses
around with the teaching of LEAN and Continuous Improvement. Every
day I go to work trying to make the people who keep these businesses
afloat, happier with a goal to make their work day enjoyable and
organized. I have a passion to make things better for businesses
and I want to extend that passion to residents of Collinsville.
I am always open to talk to you about any of your concerns for
our great town. You can reach me thru e-mail at email@example.com
. I hope to hear your thoughts, ideas and concerns you may have
so I can focus on making this town better for you and your family
if I am elected.
Collinsville is a wonderful town and I never plan on leaving.
I want to do my part as a resident to make this town even better
than it already is.
Again, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have an amazing
Hopeful Commissioner Ward 4

Voters Should Apply Early for Absentee
Voters in Rogers County
who want to have absentee ballots mailed to them for the
April 3 Special Northwest Fire and City of Collinsville Elections
should apply now, County Election Board Secretary Julie Dermody
said today. Although the County Election Board can accept applications
for absentee ballots until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28, Dermody
urged voters who want to vote by absentee ballot to apply early.
Absentee ballot application forms are available at the County Election
Board office located at 415 W 1st St, Claremore, OK 74017. An online
version of the form can be filled out and submitted electronically
at: www.elections.ok.gov. A print form can also be downloaded at
Ballots must be in the hands of County Election Board officials
by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.
Dermody said any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in
any election in which he/she is eligible to vote. However, a voter
must be registered and reside at an address within the geographical
boundaries of a school district or a municipality to be eligible
to vote in school district or municipal elections. It is not necessary
to give a reason for voting absentee.
While anyone can vote absentee without giving a reason, the
law still provides several advantages to absentee voters in some
categories, Dermody said.
By stating one of the following reasons on their applications, absentee
voters can activate special conditions that make it easier for them
to use absentee ballots. The reasons are:
Voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care
for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended
may vote absentee. They may apply only by mail, by fax, by email,
online or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is
not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity
or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.
Voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may
vote absentee. An Absentee Voting Board actually goes to the nursing
home a few days before the election, sets up a small polling place
and allows these persons to vote under circumstances similar to
those at a regular precinct polling place. They may apply only by
mail, by fax, by email, online or via an agent who is at least 16
years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third
degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears
on the ballot..
Military personnel and residents of the county living overseas
and the spouses and dependents of each group are eligible receive
absentee ballots. These voters may apply only by mail, fax, or by
email. Military personnel should contact the Voting Service Officers
in their units for application forms and additional information
or visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website (www.fvap.gov/oklahoma)
for more information and instructions. Residents of Oklahoma living
overseas can obtain the same materials from any United States military
installation and from United States Embassies and Consulates as
well as on the FVAP website.
