2 News took a closer look at what is on the ballot:

Ballot Measures

Voters can expect ballot measures covering topics such as sales taxes and bond issues.

Such propositions are on the ballot for people living in Delware, Mayes, Muskogee, Okmulgee, Rogers, and Tulsa counties.

  • Warner, Bernice and Collinsville are voting on sales taxes
  • Henryetta votes on whether to extend the termination date on its one-percent excise tax from Sept. 2024 to Sept. 2034.
  • Langley will decide whether the clerk-treasurer should be appointed by the town's board of trustees
  • Haskell Public Schools District is voting on a $13.1 million dollar bond
  • Verdigris will vote on a $3.6 million bond for its fire protection district

"Through the years, we’ve tried to be good stewards of the district’s equipment and facilities and be able to expand them as much as we can," Chief Mike Chaffer of Verdigris Fire District told 2 News ahead of a similar $13.5 million bond in October 2023. "But we’ve finally got to a position now where this building just can’t be expanded anymore."

Voters in Verdigris ultimately said no to that previous bond.

Primary Elections

U.S. House of Representatives districts 1, 2, and 3 cover much of Green Country or portions of it, with the Republican incumbents there hoping to win re-election.

District 1:

Rep. Kevin Hern will try to fend off a challenge from Paul Royse and secure a fourth term.

Independent candidate Mark David Garcia Sanders is also in the mix.

District 2:

There are no primary challengers.

District 3:

Rep. Frank Lucas is running for a 16th term.
