To advocate for common sense initiatives and solutions that move Oklahomans forward economically and socially in measurable, incremental ways.

Be a founding member of a group of citizens who share a vision of non-partisan solutions to real problems Oklahomans actually care about.
If we're going to fix this, we have to roll up our sleeves today, and we need you.
Make a difference! Get in touch and let's talk!
Democracy only works when we all support it. But too many Oklahomans don't feel they can make a difference.
And why do we have low turnout?
Interestingly, 34% of new voters are currently registering Independent, and that number is trending higher every quarter.
Everywhere, folks are saying
“I just want to vote for the PERSON.”
OKUnited believes that sensible, centrist candidates and solutions can prevail in Oklahoma with effective support.
So let's energize our voters with better choices.
Facts and common understanding underpin progress.
OKUnited seeks to present reliable information and encourage serious discussions that lead to solutions to our biggest challenges.
OKUnited supports innovative and practical steps that improve our political world today.
Our current system has brought us here, and we have to change to get a different result.
Opening all primaries to Independents is not just the fair thing to do, since taxpayers fund the primary elections; it will increase participation in the entire process, and bring new voters and candidates.
Other reforms could include: non-partisan primaries, top-2 primaries, ranked choice voting, no-excuse absentee ballots, realistic procedures for early and absentee voting, and strong, independent districting commissions.
