Tomorrow at 11am, The Senate Rules Committee will be meeting and on their schedule are a few bills of interest to us.
The first is SB896 which lowers the percentage of the vote needed to stay a recognized political party. It reduces the vote percentage from 10% to 2.5% of the vote for President and Governor. We want this bill to pass.
The second is SB1016 Which removes party names from voter registration forms. Voters will have to write in their party choice. This one is a toss up. We won't argue about it passing or not. It is all a matter of personal opinion on whether you like this change or not.
The third is SB1108 which removes the names of Electors for President from the ballot, leaving only the names of the candidates for President and Vice President on the November ballot. We want this bill to pass.http://www.oksenate.gov/Committees/Cmte_Meeting_Notices%20-%202016/1st_meeting_committee_on_rules_2_17_16.html
Please contact the Senate Rules committee and ask that they pass SB896 and SB1108 for sure.http://www.oksenate.gov/committees/standing/rules.htm
