Nancy Elliott of Ada was elected to Pontotoc District Seat 2 with 57 percent of the vote.

Elliott defeated challengers Sandra Renee Gibson and Leon D. Brown of Ada and Todd Griffith of Newcastle. That seat was vacated when incumbent legislator Dr. Judy Goforth Parker resigned to accept a position as administrator of the Chickasaw Nation Division of Health.

Pontotoc District Seat 1 incumbent Holly Easterling of Ada retained her seat, with 71 percent of the vote. Challenger Pattie Howell received 848 votes.

Pickens District Seat 1 incumbent David Woerz of Ardmore won reelection with 55 percent of the vote. Challenger Leslie Larsen Hicks of Ardmore received 528 votes, while Mike Watson of Ardmore received 507 votes.

Challenger Shana Tate Hammond of Ardmore received 56 percent of the vote to unseat incumbent Wanda Blackwood Scott of Elmore City, who received 997 votes.

Tishomingo District Seat 1 incumbent legislator D. Scott Colbert did not receive a challenger. He will retain his seat on the legislature.

Incumbent Supreme Court Justice Barbara Anne Smith drew no challengers for Seat 2 on the Supreme Court as she will retain her seat.

Elected officials will take the oath of office Oct. 1 at the Chickasaw Nation headquarters in Ada.
