Election

Voting precinct boundaries and polling stations may have changed. Many Tulsa County residents might find different information on newly distributed voter registration cards — whether it be a precinct number, a polling location or a legislative district — even if they haven’t moved in the past decade.

To view the specific sample ballot for your election precinct, go to the OK Voter Portal at oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp.

June 28 Sample Ballot

Voters' actual ballots will differ depending on their party affiliation and where they live (which dictates which candidates will appear on the ballot).

To find your precinct and view a sample ballot, go to the OK Voter Portal at oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp.

Previews of state and local races

• Meet the three Republicans challenging Gov. Kevin Stitt in the primary race for governor: Joel Kintsel, Mark Sherwood and Moira McCabe.

Previewing down-ballot state offices

Other statewide offices besides the governor's race may be contested just as fiercely, usually with less money and more difficult explanations of what it is they do.

Besides governor, Oklahoma elects 10 statewide officials: lieutenant governor, attorney general, auditor and inspector, superintendent of public instruction, treasurer, insurance commissioner, labor commissioner, and three corporation commissioners.
