$40 files the paperwork of a new notary
Oklahoma's notary requirement for absentee ballots is a barrier to many voters. It is often difficult and intimidating to find a notary with some noting misunderstanding and mistrust of the process. The requirement reduces voting access because without a notary, ballots are left uncounted, not returned, and not applied for. We want make to make finding a notary simpler and friendlier. We plan to sponsor community members across Tulsa to become notaries in order to address the systemic issues around absentee voting and increase voting access. These notaries will be the resident notary at their community center ready to notarize absentee ballots and serve as a friendly surrogate for absentee voting information.
This is a big, innovative project and with your donation, we can make it happen.
