The results are in for the special elections around Green Country.

It was an overwhelming victory for the cities of Tulsa and Sand Springs.

Residents in Sand Springs will be paying an additional $6 a month for every $100,000 their home is worth to pay for beautification projects around the city's parks, trails, and museums as well as new software for 911 dispatchers to communicate more effectively during emergencies.

Voters in Tulsa voted "yes" to all seven of the propositions on their ballot, including allowing city employees, like firefighters, to voice their political opinions during public meetings.

At the state level, Allison Ikley-Freeman, a democrat, squeezed out a win with 50.5 percent of the vote for District 37 State Senator, which covers Sand Springs to Jenks.

In the race for State Representative of District 76 in Broken Arrow, republican Ross Ford wins with nearly 70 percent of the vote.

Additionally, the City of Wagoner approved a one-cent sales tax increase.

Russell Hayman was elected Mayor of Barnsdall.

Nowata County residents approved a one-percent roads sales tax.
