High School Voter Registration Drive

The Stillwater League of Women Voters started the year off with a voter registration drive in area high schools. During the month of January, volunteers registered 204 new voters from 7 area high schools. Volunteers Pat Jaynes (left) and Jan Largent (right) are holding up the Stillwater League sign at Ripley High School.

The Year Ahead

January has already been a busy month for many of our Leagues, and we expect this election year to continue that trend.  

We'll be providing information on many elections this year, using our online Vote411 to give voters election information they need.

Sandy Bahan, LWV Norman, vice-president and advocacy chair for the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma, is monitoring legislation that fits the League's 2016 Advocacy Agenda. Look for a Legislative Watch List soon, as well as action alerts to help you contact your legislators when the time is right.
