It’s Election Day — don’t forget to vote!
Ponca City Now - April 2, 2019 10:57 am
Make plans to get out and vote today! Oklahomans in 75 of 77 counties will head to the polls today to cast their ballot in a number of elections, from school board and municipal positions to county questions. Only two counties, Greer and Harmon, do not have an election.
To find your polling location or view a sample ballot, go to: https://www.ok.gov/elections/Voter_Info/Online_Voter_Tool/. Remember, sample ballots are designed to be specific to you and your voting area. If you are unable to access a sample ballot online, it means there is not an election in your area in which you are eligible to vote.
You can find a complete list of elections at: https://www.ok.gov/elections/Election_Info/Upcoming_Elections/index.html.
The polls are open today until 7 p.m. Lines are generally shorter during mid-morning and mid-afternoon. All eligible voters in line by 7 p.m. will be entitled to vote.
In the Ponca City Public Schools district, voters will elect a school board member. The candidates are incumbent Dr. David Kinkaid and challenger Amanda Porter-Cain.
Other Kay County voters also will vote on school district elections in the Frontier School District and the Shidler School District.
Municipal elections will be held in Braman, Newkirk, Tonkawa, and Blackwell.
We’ll have a complete report of area election results tonight after polls have closed and ballots are counted.
