Voting is Habit-Forming

Research shows that successful mobilization in one election raises people’s propensity to vote in subsequent elections.

Oklahoma voter registration information can be found at the Oklahoma State Election Board website.

Students can always find Voter Registration Forms in the Involved Center and outside the Student Mail Room.

2020 Census

The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

It's also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.
