Oklahoma Voices: Getting on the Ballot / Oklahoma's Film Industry (Sep 05, 2004)
KGOU explores why Oklahoma's strict ballot access laws have third parties in the state calling for electoral reform. Guests include Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Michael Clingman; Ballot Access News Editor Richard Winger; former Central Oklahoma Libertarian Party Chair Tom Laurent; former Oklahoma Green Party co-chair Rachel Jackson and John Anderson, former Independent Presidential candidate and Chair of FairVote (ne the Center for Voting and Democracy), which researches and advocates more democratic voting systems.

Also, the recent shooting of "Elizabethtown" with Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst has attracted Hollywood's attention to Oklahoma as a "film-friendly state." Just how does Oklahoma attract big-name filmmakers, and what impact do film crews have on the local economy?

And KGOU's Susan Shannon speaks with Hank Stuever, a native of Oklahoma and journalist with The Washington Post. He's just written a book about his cross-country travels.
