Legislative seats in Norman and Tulsa, sales tax initiatives for improvements in Oklahoma City and a sheriff's race in the state's largest county are among the items on special elections ballots on Tuesday.
Voters in Norman's House District 46 will select a new legislator to replace former Republican state Rep. Scott Martin, who resigned to take a private-sector post. And in Tulsa's Senate District 37, Republican voters will pick from seven GOP candidates seeking to replace outgoing Republican state Sen. Dan Newberry. The winner will face Democrat Allison Ikley-Freeman in a November general election.
Among the other ballot items Tuesday are sales tax hikes in Oklahoma City for road and public safety improvements and a race for sheriff in Oklahoma County.
