Primary Runoff Elections Set as Oklahoma Voters Make Their Choices

Tue, 28 Aug 2018 05:44:39 CDT

Primary Runoff Elections Set as Oklahoma Voters Make Their Choices Election Day has arrived in Oklahoma- as the 2018 Primary Election Runoff is being conducted today across all 77 Oklahoma Counties. There are a total of 9 statewide races to be decided today- seven Republican, one Democrat and one Libertarian.

At the top of the ticket are two races that will help decide who will be on the ballot for Governor in Oklahoma this coming November. The Democrats have already selected Drew Edmondson as their candidate, while the Republicans must choose between Mick Cornett and Kevin Stitt while Libertarian voters will select either Chris Powell or Rex Lawhorn.

The other six Republican statewide races include Lt. Governor, State Auditor, Attorney General, State Superintendent of Education, Commissioner of Labor and Corporation Commision. The lone Democrat statewide race will decide the Democrat's nominee for Corporation Commission.

Here are the candidates in all of these races.

In the race for the GOP Nomination to run for Governor- Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays has sat down and talked with both of them about rural Oklahoma their plans if elected- click here for the conversation with Mick Cornett and click or tap here for the visit with Kevin Stitt.

Both of them have formed groups of agricultural leaders who support them- click or tap here for the Cornett Ag Group and click here for details on the Stitt Ag Support Group.


In addition to the statewide races- Congressional, State Legislative and County elections will also be decided today. Democrats have runoffs in four of the five congressional districts, with the most closely watched one in the Oklahoma City area, a district the party is hoping to take from incumbent Rep. Steve Russell, a Republican, in the Nov. 6 general election. Kendra Horn, of Oklahoma City, and Tom Guild, of Edmond, are the candidates vying for the Democratic nomination to take on Russell.


Republicans have 35 runoffs and Democrats have a dozen. The number of runoffs is directly related to the high number of candidates who filed for office this year, particularly in legislative races.

Ten of the Republican runoffs are state House races involving incumbents, seven of whom voted against the $474 million tax package funding teacher pay raises. No Democratic legislative incumbents were forced into a runoff. There are also several open seat legislative elections.

The polls open at 7 AM and will close at 7 PM.
