Election Update

Total vote counts without affidavits are complete but have not been broken down by box. This should be complete later this morning and we will have the complete breakdown at that time.

Absentee ballots were counted last night and did not change any reported results. Due to affidavit ballots and issues with some voters not having a voter ID, it will be as much as 5 days before results are official.

Voter turnout (including absentee) was at 41.35% as 5328 voters cast a ballot out of 12884 registered voters.

The following candidates will advance to the November general election:
CORONER-                   SCOTT GREGORY
SHERIFF -                     JASON PUGH
TAX ASSESSOR-         DARLENE BANE
SUPERVISOR DIST 3- MARION JORDAN
SUPERVISOR DIST 4- RALPH GOSS
SUPERVISOR DIST 5- LARRY DURAN
CONSTABLE -WEST - ED HUNT
SENATE DIST 18-         JENIFER BRANNING
HOUSE DIST 42-           CARL MICKENS

* of note: Unofficial results indicate that Choctaw Chief Phyliss J. Anderson was apparently re-elected Tuesday, defeating former chief Beasley Denson after a previous runoff election was overturned by the Tribal Council.
