The primary for local, state and federal offices will be held on Tuesday, June 24, 2014. Offices at all levels of government, local, state and federal will be on this ballot. Both U. S. Senators will be up for re-election, though the only one that will be on the primary ballot will be those candidates running for the seat Senator Tom Coburn is vacating.
The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa and the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma have submitted sets of questions to all of the candidates who will appear on the ballot. Beginning June 1st, an electronic Voters’ Guide that will include the candidates’ responses will be available at www.vote411.org. This is a comprehensive one-stop shop for your voter information needs. Information includes a biographical and career experience overview and answers to questions that are relevant to each office.
The specific links for each view will be featured on the home page of Tulsa League’s website: www.lwvtulsa.org.
