 The names of Democratic candidates will appear first on the ballot in November's general election in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax announced the ballot order Tuesday following the results of a drawing held at the state Capitol.

State law requires the selection process be held every two years to determine the order of the party candidates on the ballot. Representatives from both parties observed the drawing at the Oklahoma Election Board's office.

Drawings also were held to determine the order of independent candidates for state and federal offices.
