(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, 6/21/2018) – The Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) today announced the release of its latest Candidate Primary Voting Guides: 2018 Oklahoma Primary House Guide, 2018 Oklahoma Primary Senate Guide, and the 2018 Oklahoma Primary Gubernatorial Guide.
“These guides are a comprehensive resource for citizens to form an educated opinion on candidates running in their districts and the stances these candidates have on issues important to the Muslim community,” said Government Affairs Director Lani R. Habrock. “We hope this latest resource will encourage and empower more citizens to vote in the upcoming primary June 26th.”
The Primary Voter Guides provide information about how to find if one is registered to vote, how to find one’s district and polling station, and biographical information and the stances of many candidates in districts surrounding mosques and Islamic centers. These guides are intended to be used as an educational tool and do not endorse any individual candidate.
“The key to a healthy democracy is education and a sense of empowerment to exercise one’s rights,” Habrock said.
To request a physical copy of this resource, or any other Guides and information on voting practices and the election process contact Lani R. Habrock at LHabrock@cair.com. All Guides and other resources are provided free of charge.
