Candidate filing to continue for 2nd day in Okla.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Candidates will continue to file for state and local races at the Capitol on Thursday after a record-breaking first day.

Thursday will be the second of three days potential candidates can file for candidacy at the Oklahoma State Capitol. On Wednesday, 419 people filed, breaking the previous record for first-day filings from 2006.

More than 300 elected positions are up for grabs in November, including both of Oklahoma's U.S. Senate seats, all five congressional seats, and statewide offices, including governor and lieutenant governor.

This year's primary election is scheduled for June 24 with a runoff, if necessary in any race, scheduled on Aug. 26. The general election is set for Nov. 4.

The Election Board reported in January that there are nearly 2 million registered voters in the state.
