Vote411.org Voters’ Guide for Tulsa Public Schools
Board of Education Elections on Feb. 12

League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa has created an online Voters’ Guide for the Feb.12 Board of Education primary election for Tulsa Public Schools Office 1 and general election for Office 2 unexpired term.

Tulsa —The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa has assembled an online Voters’ Guide about the candidates running in the Feb. 12 Board of Education elections for Tulsa Public Schools. Elections include a primary election for Office 1 and a general election for the unexpired term for Office 2.

The online Voters’ Guide allows voters to see which candidates will be on their ballot and compare the candidates running for each office. An online version of the Voters’ Guide is available at http://www.vote411.org/.

In compiling the Voters’ Guide, the League invited all candidates who have filed for vacant positions and face a challenger. The League does not edit or change any responses from candidates, including spelling and grammar. The Voters’ Guide is voluntary so candidates can choose whether they wish to participate.

The League’s mission is to “encourage informed and active participation in government works, to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.”  The League strives to provide useful non-partisan tools for the voters to use to learn about the candidates running for office. The Voters’ Guide is one way the League fulfills this mission.
