Each Monday in October from 1 p.m. 2 p.m. KGOU features Oklahoma Engaged LIVE: Voice of the Voter hosted by KGOU General Manager Dick Pryor and Managing Editor Logan Layden. The program focuses on what’s motivating voters to get to the polls this fall. The final episode from October 26th includes StateImpact Oklahoma reporter Robby Korth and KOSU reporter Kateleigh Mills. Robby and Kateleigh hosted an election event for students across the state a few days prior to the show, and they discuss the takeaways from engaging in the focus groups. 

Following Kateleigh and Robby, Dick Pryor welcomed Dr. Amy Sue Goodin from OU Poll. She conducted the polling so many of this year’s Oklahoma Engaged stories are based on. The polling focused on what’s motivating votes, from the COVID-19 response to racial injustice.
