On Tuesday, Oklahoma voting locations will be open and full of people casting their votes.

Voters will have to decide party candidates for governor and lieutenant governor.

In Tulsa County, Tammy Westcott and Ben Fu are hoping to take District Attorney Steve Kunzweilers spot.

Another race we'll be looking out for is the seat for District 12 State Representative.

That position is currently held by Kevin McDugle who caused some controversy during the teacher walkout with the comments, "You are losing the support of people who supported you all year long. All year long, we supported you. And now you got to come here and act like this after you got a raise. Go right ahead, be pissed at me if you want to."

Muskogee County Public Information Officer Nick Mahoney is running against McDugle.

Another hot topic is medical marijuana in Oklahoma.

Voters will either vote yay or nay the idea for further votes coming this fall.

Voters in Adair and Haskell will be considering whether or not to stay dry.

The ballot measure would allow local businesses to sell full-strength beer, wine, and mixed drinks.

Polls open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
