OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City Councilwoman for Ward 7, Nikki Nice is hosting a series of community events to encourage residents to register to vote, take the 2020 Census and wear face masks.
“Voting and taking the census are two of the most important things residents can do to ensure their voice counts,” said Councilwoman Nice. “Oklahoma City’s census response rate is 64%, but parts of northeast Oklahoma City have response rates as low as 32%. It is important that we end our census count with higher numbers for our communities that have seen the impact of less resources to build better and forward for the next 10 years.”
A census worker will be on hand to help residents take the census.
Assistance will also be available to help residents register to vote.
The socially distanced events will be held from 4-6 p.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday in September:
- Tuesdays in the Northeast Town Center parking lot, 1148 NE 36th Street (Sept. 8, 15, 22 and 29)
- Thursdays in the JFK Park parking lot, 1824 NE 16th Street (Sept. 10, 17 and 24)
- Sundays in the Spencer Shopping Center parking lot, NE 23rd Street and Spencer Road (Sept. 6, 13, 20 and 27)
People who attend the event will receive free disposable face masks while supplies last.
