The September unit meetings will begin the Tulsa League's discussion of Instant Runoff Voting. Regularly practiced in Europe and Australia for years, it's beginning to catch on here. Several cities across the country have adopted this form of voting.
Attend the September unit meetings to help the League decide whether this is a practice we want to adopt in Oklahoma. Read on.

Tulsa County Election Board Assistant Secretary Shelly Boggs met with League leaders in late July to discuss the new Voter ID law. Bottom line:

Poll workers are not permitted to assist voters with the paper work, so be sure to take your time and read the instructions carefully. Be sure the name you put on the affidavit matches what is on the voter rolls. This is the most important step in voting your provisional ballot. If the name on the affidavit that accompanies the provisional ballot substantially conforms to the name on the voter rolls, that vote will be counted. Read on.
