Election dates start to line up

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — With one election right around the corner in Garvin County another looks to soon follow this fall thanks to a series of candidate filings in Maysville.

As of Wednesday afternoon there were a total of five candidate names filed as each looks to fill one of the three Maysville board of trustee seats left vacant at the same time after the abrupt resignations by a trio of office-holders.

With the three-day filing period coming to an end there looks to be an election now set for Oct. 8 to decide the issue.

One race looks to be between Richard Duane Robinson and Debra Degering to fill one town council office with two more years left in its full term.

Two other seats with unexpired terms look to be filled by the top vote-getters out of the three candidates filing to seek the offices.

The trio of candidates include Michael Park, David Uhles and Bryson S. Tate.

The two candidates receiving the most votes will earn the two seats that include nearly full four-year terms.

The last day to request mailed absentee ballots for the vote is Sept. 4, while early in-person absentee voting is 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 6 and Sept. 9 at the Garvin County Election Board.

This newfound Maysville election is set to follow one even closer on Sept. 10.

That one less than two weeks away includes a council race in Lindsay and a school election for Elmore City-Pernell voters.

In the election Scott McPherson and Ronny Harrell are competing for a council office in Lindsay that includes an unexpired term.

Voters in the ECP School District will decide the fate of a school bond issue.

The $7.51 million issue spread out over a series, if passed by at least 60 percent support, would go to construct a new gymnasium and convert ECP High School into a building with separated areas for middle school and high school students.

The September election date once included two other cities.

Since rescinded from this particular ballot was a half cent sales tax measure to support the operation of Pauls Valley General Hospital.

The proposed tax could return and be brought before voters as early as November.

Another issue taken off the ballot was a race for a vacant council seat in Stratford.

Sean McKinney wound up winning the office outright when he successfully contested the candidacy of opponent Randall Jolley.

Election board officials ruled last week Jolley was not eligible to run for office because he hadn’t been a registered voter in Stratford for a long enough period of time.
