Welcome to the 2018 Oklahoma Voter Guide
THE GIFT OF DEMOCRACY
OKLAHOMA VOTER GUIDE, is a nonpartisan effort by the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma, with help from several non-proﬁt and for-proﬁt entities. After many months of planning, we are proud to oﬀer readers a high-quality resource with analysis and education for the 2018 general election. This Voter Guide does not endorse or oppose any candidates for state or federal office, nor does it take any positions on the state questions.
Vision Care and Eyeglasses
This proposal, if approved, would allow people to receive eye exams and purchase eyeglasses and contact lenses from retail establishments such as Walmart, Costco, and Target, rather than solely in optometry offices.
This law would amend the Oklahoma Constitution to reinforce and extend the rights of crime victims to be heard during court proceedings, to be notified of all their rights, and to have their rights protected equally to those of the accused.
This proposal would change the existing election process for governor and lieutenant governor from separate elections to a joint ticket, similar to that for the president and vice president of the United States.
Oklahoma Vision Fund
The purpose of the measure is to establish an additional investment/savings fund for the state.
Ad Valorem Tax for Education
This question seeks to allow local districts to tap another funding source—ad valorem taxes dedicated to a school building fund—for operations expenses, including teacher and other salaries.
