Oklahoma voters headed to the polls on Tuesday for general, municipal and special elections.
Seventy-five of 77 counties had elections.
City council seats in Bixby, Jenks, Broken Arrow, Okmulgee, Beggs, Glenpool and Skiatook were up for grabs. Only a handful of the incumbents ran for reelection.
The Claremore mayoral race caught a lot of attention. Current Mayor Bill Flanagan fought to keep his seat over a challenge from 19-year-old candidate Kurt Levan. According to election board records, Flanagan survived with a 129-vote victory.
"My first priority if elected would be to launch an investigation into the city's high electric rates," Levan said. "My second is improving and modernizing our infrastructure around railroad tracks."
"We look for the interest of the city, not necessarily the interest of the individual and that's what we have working now and it's working," Flanagan said.
A tight runoff in Pryor Creek determined Larry Lees will take over for longtime mayor Jimmy Tramel. Lees took 53 percent of the vote and Jill Sherman had 47 percent, early returns show.
City of Tulsa voters also decided on a board member for both Tulsa Tech and Tulsa Public Schools.
