Oklahoma 2012 Civic Health Index Released

Together with our partners at the University of Central Oklahoma, NCoC released the 2012 Oklahoma Civic Health Index at the Oklahoma State Capitol on December 4. Secretary of State Glenn Coffee accepted the report on behalf of the state.

The report finds that the state thrives in areas such as volunteerism and families sharing meals, but has room for growth in other areas including voting and political participation. The report focuses on the critical importance of civic skills and voter education, and the research team now plans to use an infographic on the findings as an educational tool for schools and libraries across the state.

The Oklahoma Civic Health Index is produced in partnership with the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma Campus Compact, the Kerr Foundation, Inc., and the Walton Family Foundation.

Finding your Local Officials

What if I don't know who my local representative is?

This is easily remedied. To determine who your representative is, start by looking at the state map or the list of Oklahoma cities and towns on the House's webpages. Some communities, such as Tulsa or Oklahoma City are divided, but maps of those two communities may enable you to determine who your representative is. If you are still in doubt, contact your county election board which can tell you what house district you reside in. You can also go to this "Find your Representative" page. These are links to an external website which we have no control over, so if you have problems with their web site then you will have to contact them about the problem.
