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. Episode 3 from October 19th includes StateImpact Oklahoma reporter Catherine Sweeney expanding on the previous week’s discussion about State Question 814
Following Catherine and Logan, Dick Pryor welcomed University of Oklahoma journalism professor Dr. Keith Gaddy. Their discussion focused on the Electoral College and various potential election outcome scenarios.
Finally, the entire group came together to take listener calls and answer questions submitted via social media and email. Even this close to the election, these extraordinary times means people still have a lot of questions about how to make sure their votes count and what the future beyond November 3rd will look like.
Oklahoma Engaged an election project by NPR member stations in Oklahoma supported by the Inasmuch Foundation, the Kirkpatrick Foundation, and Oklahoma Humanities.
