Today’s runoff elections metaphorically mark the final turn before Oklahoma candidates enter the home stretches of their respective races. After besting opponents (sometimes several) in the primaries, statewide candidates who still lacked a clear majority among party constituents entered into the following primary runoffs.
The work of tonight’s victors will be cut out for them through November’s general election. Similarly, work remains for we humble voters, too. With that in mind, NonDoc has compiled the following list of links to previous coverage of all of today’s statewide runoff elections, most of which will be relevant only to voters registered as Republicans. We have hosted several political debates among these statewide candidates, including Friday’s GOP superintendent of public instruction runoff debate (video above).
Additionally, we have compiled information on all runoff races for seats in the Oklahoma Legislature, and we have primers on the Oklahoma County Commissioner District 1 Democratic runoff and the Oklahoma City Council Ward 7 special election.
Knowledge is power. Voting is a right. Exercise your right with all your might.
