The next legislative session starts on February 4th. A new class of legislators is headed to the Capitol soon to start tackling important issues. So now what do we do? For people like you and me who advocate for policies that improve the lives of Oklahomans, our work doesn’t end after election day. With so many new legislators, it’s key time to let them know who we are and what we care about. Here are three things you can do to start the next legislative session off on the right foot.
Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 6th and early voting starts Thursday, Nov. 1st through Saturday, Nov. 3rd at County Election Boards. This election will determine how we address pressing problems facing our state. This is our chance to build a more prosperous Oklahoma, but that can only happen with your vote. Watch a short video from that staff at the Together Oklahoma and Oklahoma Policy Institute explaining all the reasons to get out and vote this year.
This year, Oklahomans will head to the polls to elect a new governor and the next class of state legislators. The people we elect will decide how we address our state’s most pressing problems. It is up to us to know where candidates stand on issues affecting our communities and our families, so we can make informed decisions at the ballot.
Did you vote in the June primary election? If so, great! Now, are you going to vote in the runoff primary election? Oklahomans did a great job of turning out for the primary election, but we still have work to do. It’s time to head to the polls once again! Tomorrow is election day for the runoff primary. Historically, voter turnout in the runoff has been abysmal. Let’s change that. Watch this short video to see why voting in the runoff is so important.
