“With Oklahoma’s 2010 elections approaching, we wanted to redesign our Web site so that it is clear and concise, easy-to-use, and allows us to communicate more effectively with the public,” said State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax. “We feel we have achieved this mission, and we are very excited that the new site will enhance the State Election Board’s ability to provide information to voters and candidates throughout the election season.”

The Oklahoma State Election Board launched its new Web site utilizing OK.gov’s Go Gov! Web Management Suite.
