Ballots ready for election day

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — The precincts are open and ready for ballots. In fact, every precinct in Garvin County is open until 7 p.m. as part of Tuesday’s primary election.

The June 24 vote is next in line for this election season as voters registered in the Democratic or Republican parties will get their say on a variety of races.

In Garvin County the top race is for a commissioner’s office as both candidates are on the Democratic side.

Longtime District 3 Commissioner Johnny Mann of Stratford is going for his seventh term in office.

His challenger is Mike DeArman of Paoli.

In Stratford two candidates, Santee Wade and Stephanie Butenhof, are running for the No. 2 post on the Stratford Board of Trustees.

The remaining offices, much like the one between Mann and DeArman, are offered on party lines.

Those registered as Independents won’t take part in this election and will have to wait until November’s general election.

On the Democratic side Bert Smith and Tae Si are running for the party’s nomination for U.S. Representative District 4.

Three candidates — Patrick Michael Hayes, Jim Rogers and Connie Johnson — are competing for the Democratic nomination for the unexpired U.S. Senate office with Tom Coburn retiring.

John Cox, Jack C. Herron Jr., Ivan Holmes and Freda Deskin are on the Democratic ballot for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Republican voters have plenty on the ballot with two U.S. Senate races attracting the most candidates.

U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe has four primary challengers — Erick Paul Wyatt, Evelyn L. Rogers, Rob Moye and D. Jean McBride-Samuels.

The Senate office being vacated by Coburn has seven Republican contenders.

They include James Lankford, Jason Weger, Andy Craig, T.W. Shannon, Randy Brogdon, Eric C. McCray and Kevin Crow.

The Republican primary for governor features incumbent Mary Fallin, Dax Ewbank and Chad Moody.

Three more candidates running for Superintendent of Public Instruction — incumbent Janet Costello Barresi, Joy Hofmeister and Brian S. Kelly — are on the Republican side.

The Republican primary also features incumbent John Doak and Bill Viner for Insurance Commissioner and Todd Hiett and Cliff Branan for Corporation Commission.

Any runoff elections will come on Aug. 26.

That very same late summer date will also be the time for school bond elections in the Wynnewood and Elmore City-Pernell school districts.

In both cases the proposed issue is for school building projects.
