Voters likely haven't seen the last of Vision2, despite defeating it at the ballot box.
The polling ahead of this year’s election was mostly accurate. But one Oklahoma poll was among those that missed the mark badly when, just days before the election, it showed Tulsa County’s Vision2 tax extension headed for victory.
Close to 60% of respondents said they were in favor of Arkansas River dam upgrades and a host of other quality-of-life projects. The airport improvements were also ahead. In the end, both proposals failed.
But Vision2 will be back.
- Where Vision2 Went WrongThe future of the projects is blurry after being rejected by voters, but supporters say Tulsa County’s infrastructure isn’t going to fix itself.Download
