Tulsa County – The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa has assembled an online Voters’ Guide about the candidates running in the Feb. 11 Board of Education Primary Election Tulsa Public Schools District 5 and 6, Bixby Public Schools Office 5, and Owasso Public Schools Office 5.
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/.
