Voters all across Green Country are heading to the polls to vote on a number of issues impacting their communities.

This includes several school bond proposals totaling millions of dollars.

In Rogers County, voters can decide on two separate bond issues totaling over $10 million for Oologah-Talala Public Schools.

If passed, the first one would go towards renovations and repairs for facilities across the district. It would even provide new textbooks, technology, uniforms and band instruments.

The second proposal would help acquire new vehicles for the district like school buses. District officials say even if these pass there will be no projected tax increase.

In Pittsburg County, two bond measures totaling nearly $2.5 million are up for vote for McAlester Public Schools.

The first bond issue would provide funding for new technology in the classroom and help expand the district's stem program by hiring more teachers and purchasing new equipment. If passed, the second bond issue would allow the district to purchase more vehicles for school use.

In Creek County, voters there can decide on nearly $2.5 million in bond issues for Mounds Public Schools. This would help fund new playground equipment, renovate the auditorium and the gymnasium as well as provide money to install a new track.

If passed, a second bond issue up for vote in the district would let the district purchase four new school buses.
