Mike Ritze Capitol: (405) 557-7338 OKLAHOMA CITY (March 12, 2009) â Legislation requiring candidates filing with the Oklahoma State Election Board and any county election board in Oklahoma to provide documentation of their citizenship has been approved by the House. House Bill 1329, by state Rep. Mike Ritze, would require prospective candidates to provide a birth certificate showing U.S. citizenship, a non-birth U.S. citizenship certificate, a certificate of naturalization or a passport in order to file. U.S. presidential and vice presidential candidates would not be able to use either certificate of naturalization or passport. It would also make those documents subject to the Oklahoma Open Records Act. âI think that it would be a travesty for a non-citizen to get elected to a government position,â Ritze, R-Broken Arrow, said. âI also think that it puts aside any doubts by those who would question a legitimate candidate. It is a common-sense bill and I am glad to see the House pass it.â House Bill 1329 now awaits a hearing in the Senate.
