With less than a week before voters hit the polls, the race between Jon Cox and Joy Hofmeister to become the next State School too close to call, according to the latest News 9 poll.

At this point both campaigns hope to sway undecided voters after last month's exclusive News 9 poll showed the race was dead even.

Our third and final poll taken just a week before election day shows only two points separate Hofmeister and Cox.

“The race is really tight right now," said Bill Shapard, CEO of SoonerPoll.com. “Hofmeister has the lead going into Tuesday and I think it will come down to the very last bit of votes.”
