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 currently 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 in the primary election. 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.

“Vote411.org is a one-stop place for voters to easily find all the candidate information they need,” said Lacey Thompson, chair of voter services for the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa. “In today’s complicated world, vote411.org enables voters to hear directly from candidates in a straightforward and digestible way.”

Important dates to note:

  • Early voting: Thurs., Feb. 3, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Fri., Feb. 4, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the Tulsa County Election Board
  • Election Day: Tues., Feb. 8, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. at polling location

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.
