LREC Pays Taxes to Local Schools


Classes have started for many area schools and students are back in the classrooms. Education is important for students and Lake Region Electric Cooperative believes strongly in support- ing local school districts within its service territory. People may believe that LREC does not pay taxes because


they are a non-profit organization. LREC does indeed pay a Gross Receipts Tax on the sale of electricity. The tax is equal to 2% of the total gross receipts on the sale of electricity. Ninety-five percent of the tax paid is distributed by the Okla- homa Tax Commission to area schools.


Each school receives


an amount determined by the miles of line in its district. The chart, to the right of this page, shows distributions and a break- down of the 2010 taxes paid per school district. In 2010, LREC paid $724,547.07 on 3010.3 miles of line to 35 school districts in its seven county territory.


f Identity for Voting in Oklahoma


The form is available online at www.elections.ok.gov, at all tag agencies, and at most libraries and post offices in Oklahoma. Voter registration applications may be submitted at any time, but must be received at least 24 days before an election for the change to be in effect for the election. The “voter ID” law, approved by the 74% of Oklahoma vot- ers on November 2, 2010, went into effect on July 1, 2011. Ac- cording to Connie Parnell, County Election Board Secretary, the law is very specific about the kind of document that can be used for proof of identity. “Any item used for proof of identity for voting must have been issued by the federal government, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government. In addition, the proof of identity must show the name of the person to whom it was issued, a photograph of the person, and must include an expiration date that is after the election date,” said Parnell. “The law also states that the person’s name on a document used for proof of identity for voting must substantially conform to the person’s name in the precinct registry,” added Parnell. Some documents that may be presented as proof of identity


for voting include an Oklahoma driver license, a state identifi- cation card, a passport, or a military identification. A voter who does not have proof of identity that meets the requirements of the new law still may vote by provisional bal- lot. A provisional ballot is sealed inside an envelope instead of being inserted into the voting device.
