(Oklahoma City) – Republican Party candidates will appear first on Oklahoma’s November General Election ballots following the results of a public drawing held Thursday, Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax announced. Libertarian Party candidates will be listed second, followed by Democratic Party candidates.

State law requires the State Election Board secretary to conduct a drawing every two years to determine the order of political parties on the ballot. Representatives of the three political parties observed the drawing at the State Election Board’s meeting room at the Jim Thorpe Building in Oklahoma City. The drawing was also livestreamed on the State Election Board’s Facebook page.

Drawings were also held to determine the order of Independent candidates for President of the United States and United States Senator.
