Polls open for special elections across Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Polls are open in more than half of Oklahoma's counties for a variety of special elections, including legislative races in Norman and Tulsa and a contest for sheriff in the state's largest county.

Polls are open until 7 p.m. Tuesday for special elections in 40 of the state's 77 counties. The elections include school bond proposals, town council seats, alcohol sales and more than $1 billion in improvements in Oklahoma City.

In Norman's House District 46, voters will pick a new legislator to replace former Republican state Rep. Scott Martin, who resigned in May. Democratic schoolteacher Jacob Rosecrants faces Republican businessman Darin Chambers in the Republican-leaning district.

And in Tulsa's Senate District 37, Republican voters will pick from seven GOP candidates in a special primary election.
