This is primary election day in Oklahoma.
Not only will voters decide the fate of SQ 788 [which, if approved would legalize medical marijuana], but they also will choose nominees for governor, other statewide offices and Congress, county officials and district court judges.
All registered voters may cast ballots on SQ 788. Additionally, registered independents may cast ballots in the Democratic primary. Polls are open statewide from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
We learned first-hand in recent years what happens when good-hearted, but politically apathetic Oklahomans leave their #CivicDuty in the hands of others: A statehouse devoid of leadership, unable to solve our most pressing problems.
Today is a critical first step in determining whether we embrace modernity and progress or solidify our position as national bottom-feeders in nearly every socioeconomic category.
The choice is yours.
