Posted on Thursday, August 16, 2018 10:58 AM by K. Latham

On Tuesday, August 28, 2018, Oklahoma will be having a runoff election for the primary we had on June 26th. Both the Republican and Democratic parties have statewide runoffs, so everyone should head to the polls and vote.

Notably the Republicans are having a runoff for Governor between Mick Cornett and Kevin Stitt. The winner of that will face Democrat Drew Edmondson in November.

Please visit ok.gov/elections and use the online voter tool to view a sample ballot. You may also have local or district runoff elections.

Independents, remember you can vote in the Democratic runoff, but not the Republican one.
