Oklahoma Votes


Oklahoma Votes is a student-led nonpartisan organization sponsored by the Carl Albert Congressional Research & Studies Center. The mission of Oklahoma Votes is to register, educate, and mobilize OU students and community members. With the help of our civic engagement coalition, we make participation in our democracy a priority on campus.

Oklahoma Votes accomplishes its mission through

  • Tabling in common areas on campus to register new voters
  • Hosting debate watch parties
  • Bringing candidates to campus for bi-partisan dialogue
  • Organizing the annual Oklahoma Voting Summit, which convenes students from across the state to discuss best practices for civic engagement
