This is my sample ballot for primary election ballot for Washington County (HD11)
Primary Election to be held on June 26, 2018 in Oklahoma
Here is an online tool from the Oklahoma State Election Board so that you can get your personal sample ballot which may differ depending on where you live. It is also always available as a top tab item on OKGrassroots.com
You will need to plug in some personal information to be able to locate your personal sample ballot online. You had to be registered by June 1st in order to vote in this election. I am registered as a Republican so this information will be different for you if you are registered in one of the other parties. I will be providing some personal endorsements over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
Updated June 23, 2018: My Voting Recommendations are here now.
Tonight in Cleveland Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination. He wasn’t my first choice, but I don’t care much for Gary Johnson and cannot stand Hillary Clinton. That said, I watched the acceptance speech and thought it would be good to have a record of ‘The Plan’ he rolled out tonight and some tidbits along the way.
Also for any who were supposed to watch and didn’t for summer school, maybe you will find my notes helpful. Or of course you can watch approximately 4 hours of speeches here on youtube:

Donald J Trump’s – Acceptance of Nomination Speech (my rough notes)
July 21, 2016
Put America first
Americanism not globalism will be our credo
American people will come first
Safety at home
Law and order
Rebuild America – jobs and economy
Big business major donors media not happy – losing control (cronyism at work)
Things must change and now
Horrible Trade deals forgotten people – no longer
No patience for injustice
No tolerance for government injustice
Corruption will not be tolerated in administration (example HC – careless / negligent / crimes)
Nobody knows the system better than me – I can fix it starting with bad trade deals (reaching out to Bernie Sanders) to bring fairness and justice to all Americans
Suspend immigration from suspect terrorist countries until vetting mechanisms in place
We will build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration to stop the drugs and gangs from pouring in – enforcement from border control officers (ending catch and release programs)
Overstaying visas will stop
Americans will wake up in a country where the laws are enforced – considerate and compassionate to everyone but greatest compassion will be for our own!
Oath of office
Will make country rich again with the greatest business people in the world – bad trade agreements will be turned into great trade agreements
Will bring back jobs to this country undoing NAFTA ramifications
Reform of tax laws – largest tax reduction of any candidate this year / simplified for everyone!
Regulations – ending excessive regulations fast by lifting restrictions on production of energy (steel workers and miners going back to work again)
Millions of more jobs
Rescue kids by sending them to a safe school of their choice
Repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare – chose your own doctor again
We will fix TSA at the airports which is a total disaster
We will work with student debt and take the pressure off
We will rebuild our depleted military (big cheer)
Countries we are protecting will be asked to pay their fair share
We will take care of our veterans like they have never been taken care of before. Those who served will be able to see the doctor of their choice with no waiting
We will eliminate wasteful spending in first 100 days
Appoint justices who will uphold laws and constitution
Replacement of Scalia will be someone of similar philosophy
Endorsed by NRA – supports second amendment
Evangelicals – thanks (undeserved and appreciated) – very sincere – speaking your minds in your own pulpits / will work hard to repeal that language without threat of tax exempt status
Start believing – America is back bigger and better and stronger than before

These things were mentioned in the midst of the list above:
Vice President – Mike Pence of Indiana
Christian – Conservative – Republican (in that order)
Kudos to all of his family – specially the ones who spoke at the convention
Task – to liberate USA from crime and terrorism in our communities — because an attack on law enforcement is an attack on all Americans. We must restore law and order – will work with and appoint best and brightest to get the job properly done (side shot to Rudy Guliani)
House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen said of Ryan on Saturday, “He has betrayed us all, hasn’t he? He says he’s for a secure border. Then what’s he do? He funds every dangerous immigration policy through this $1.8 trillion omnibus. What he funded was all his special interest buddies.”
Nehlen’s comments came during an exclusive interview Saturday with Breitbart News Saturday SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon. Nehlen pointed out again that 83 percent of Ryan’s camapign donations come from D.C., not his home district: “The vast majority comes in the form of large campaign donations from inside the D.C. Beltway. … He sold his vote. He sold his vote. The same people that are donating to his campaign want these open border initiatives. This isn’t a Free Trade deal.”
