Oklahoma Voter Profile: Santiago And Marco Arzate

Nov 7, 2016

As KGOU and KOSU began crafting ideas for our collaborative election project Oklahoma Engaged, we were interested in several forms of storytelling. This included informative and in-depth radio stories and video profiles of folks in a south Oklahoma City district.

Santiago Arzate and his son, Marco, own several businesses in the Capitol Hill district of south Oklahoma City. They are trying to encourage more Latinos to vote. They would rather have a good time with family instead of get into heated political arguments.

Oklahoma Engaged is a collaborative series between KGOU and KOSU, with support from the Kirkpatrick Foundation. You can find more and follow along at
