One week from today, important primary elections for state offices will happen across Oklahoma. You are not the only one who knows that legislators won’t take us seriously if we don’t show up to the polls.
More than 1,000 Oklahomans like you have joined our Facebook event, I’m Voting in the Oklahoma Primary and bringing my friends! It is time to show our current and future legislators that we are serious about fair and adequate funding for public services, and a growing number of Oklahomans are with us.
Here are some ways to find key info and take action during the elections:
- Look up where your polling place is and see your sample ballot here.
- Think of at least one person you know who cares about making our state better. Help them get the information they need to vote next week! You can look up your friends, family, and neighbors’ voting history at badvoter.org. (But I’m not recommending you pick any fights about it!)
- Offer a carpool for anyone who might need a ride to the polls. Make it a voting date! You can post if you need transportation or can provide a ride for TOK members in our Together OK Facebook group or Slack channel (if you’re not already in Slack, sign up by filling out the survey TOK chapters).
- Share the OK Policy 2016 elections page on social media and/or with anyone who may have questions.
Together Oklahoma is a non-partisan coalition, so this is not an effort to campaign for or against any candidates for public office. We are campaigning for YOU to do more than cast your own informed ballot. Your vote is essential but, as you can see above, there is more that you can do if you are serious about improving Oklahoma.
