The Yes on 802 campaign says they plan to visit more than 21 communities in these next four days.

The main goal for their community check-in is to get medicaid expansion passed. The state question that could make it happen is on the primary ballot at the end of June.

During this community check in, organizers will be catching up with different grassroots advocates who helped them gather enough signatures last year to put state question 802 on the ballot.

Supporters will be passing out yard sings, bumper stickers and overall information to the community about the June 30th primary election.

“This campaign is made of Oklahomans from every corner of the state. They’ve worked very hard to get it on the ballot, and it’s time for Oklahomans to decide on this issue,” said Amber England from Yes on 802.

The Yes to 802 campaign will also be thanking essential healthcare workers who are dealing with COVID-19.

Their community check will start at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
