Filings to follow next election

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — One election is now just a couple of weeks away in nearby Wynnewood, while others could be on the horizon with an upcoming filing period.

The Wynnewood vote set for early next month is centered on a school bond issue.

Following that is a filing period sure to determine any county, state or federal races throughout the entire 2014 election season.

The three-day filing period is set for April 9-11.

A number of Garvin County offices will be a part of the filing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each of those three days at the Election Board office in the county courthouse.

They include county assessor, county treasurer and two of the three county commissioner offices, specifically districts 1 and 3.

Filings for the remainder of offices will take place at the state Election Board in Oklahoma City.

Among those offices are district and associate district judge posts in Garvin County, along with the district attorney’s office that includes this county.

Any races that come from the filing period will be contested during the primary on June 24. The last day to register for that election date is May 30.

Primary run-offs, if needed, would be held on Aug. 26.

The general election date this year is Nov. 4.

Even sooner is the school bond election in Wynnewood, set for Tuesday, April 1.

The $20.3 million bond issue, if passed by at least 60 percent, will go to build a new elementary school.

The proposal calls for the new grade school to be built on property on the north side of town a few yards southeast of Wynnewood’s football field.

In this scenario local middle school students would then be moved into the current grade school facility.

There has been some opposition expressed on the proposed location of a new grade school, along with an increase in property taxes some believe is too high.

Anyone interested in having absentee ballots mailed to them have until 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 26 to apply.

Election officials stress any registered voter eligible to vote in this election may vote by absentee ballot without having to state a reason.

Application forms are available at the county Election Board office. Forms are also available at www.ok.gove/elections online.

Early absentee voting in person style will be offered from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, March 27-28 at the Election Board.
