TULSA - In addition to electing the 45th president, the state of Oklahoma had seven measures on the ballot. 

The right to farm did not pass.

The measure would've allowed anyone the right to farm and ranch in the state. 

The increased sales tax to fund education did not pass.

The measure would've raised the state's sales tax one cent to raise teacher salaries and fund higher education, among other things. 

The right to sell high-point beer and wine did pass. 

This will allow grocery stores to sell high-point beer and wine. In addition, liquor stores have the right to sell more than just alcohol.
