Today is Primary Day for Tulsa municipal offices. Many of the races have only challengers in the primary, so Districts 2, 5, and 8 will be decided today in the primary election.
Polls are open until 7pm and you have, by law, the right to take up to 2 hours off work to go cast your ballot (so no excuses!). To vote in a primary, you must be a registered member of the political party in whose primary you wish to vote.
To find out where to vote, visit Tulsa County’s precinct finder.
Last time around, I somehow managed to forget to vote and my city councilor lost a close race. If someone as politically aware as me forgot, I imagine many others did as well. So your vote, collectively, really does count – especially in local elections and even more especially in primaries for them, when turnout is very low.
