OKLAHOMA CITY – Take Shelter Oklahoma will host a telephone town hall discussion on Sunday, Nov. 10. Oklahoma voters can call in for a 30 minute town hall discussion of school storm shelters and the Take Shelter Oklahoma Initiative Petition.

Presenters will explain the details of the ballet petition as well as the progress being achieved in the signature collection process.

Participation in the “Get your 20” campaign will also be explained so that supporters can help obtain the 160,000 signatures required.

Most importantly the panel will answer the questions for voters across the state during the telephone town hall session.

OKLAHOMA CITY – A local petition drive that is trying to get storm shelters in every Oklahoma school is now launching a new campaign.

The “Get Your 20” campaign encourages each supporter to get 20 signatures over the next four weeks.

So far, the Take Shelter Oklahoma drive has collected 60,000 signatures.

However, volunteers need an extra 100,000 signatures to place a storm shelter issue on the ballot.

In addition to the “Get Your 20” campaign, Take Shelter Oklahoma will be scheduling a number of events across the state in November and December.

The petition will ask voters to approve the issuance of a $500 million bond to fund the construction of school storm shelters and provide enhanced security at schools.

Funds collected from the existing franchise tax would pay for the construction.

There are 42 days left in the school storm shelter petition drive.

Supporters who wish to participate in the “Get Your 20” campaign are asked to send their address to TakeShelterOklahoma@gmail.com and request to collect signatures.
