As KOSU and KGOU 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.
But, we also wanted to strip away all extraneous information and get down to the bare bones of a couple of the seven state questions. And to do that, we commissioned two videos from Blake Behrens of Radfive Creative.
The first video breaks down State Question 779—the penny sales tax to fund education question—to show what it means if you vote 'yes' and what it means if you vote 'no'.
We hope the video will inform viewers about one question on the ballot and we hope that you will share it with your friends and family as they ponder their vote on November 8.
