STATEMENT FROM SENATE PRESEDENT PRO TEM COFFEE
ON GOVERNOR'S VETO OF VOTER ID BILL


“I’m very disappointed, but not surprised by the governor’s veto of this very reasonable reform

“We believe this is a very positive reform for all voters of the state of Oklahoma. We met the governor half way on early voting, and had hoped the governor would view this legislation favorably.

“When the House passes SB 692, this issue will go to a vote of the people, where I anticipate wide support, and we’ll see Voter ID as a stand alone measure on the ballot. One way or another, we will see to it that our election process remains clean and fair, and that no legitimate votes are nullified by activist groups who seek to tip an election in their favor.”
