LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Oklahoma’s next election day is coming up, and there are a few other important dates to keep in mind.

On Tuesday, April 5, Oklahoma is holding runoff elections for school boards and city council races, and there are a few bond proposals on the ballots.

In Lawton, Ward 7 voters are deciding between V. Gay F. McGahee and Jesse Robert Cross. McGahee was chosen to fill the Ward 7 seat after Councilman Stanley Hayes passed away.

Voters in Duncan’s Ward 3 will decide between Clyde Shaw and Patty Wininger to represent them.

Waurika’s District 4 voters are deciding between Jerry Wallace and Mike Gaines to serve as the commissioner.

Cement Public Schools has a runoff election between Shelly Mink and Belinda Chandler.

Rush Springs, Big Pasture, Sterling, Fletcher and Carnegie public school districts all have bonds up for vote.

Absentee ballots can be requested until 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, for anyone wanting to take advantage of early voting via mail. Absentee ballots can be picked up at your county election board office or requested online.

“At least two mail transactions must be made,” said Sue Hobbs, Caddo County Election Board Secretary. “The county election board must mail the ballots to the voter and the voter must return the voted ballots by mail.”

In order for an absentee ballot to be counted, they must be in the hands of the county election board by 7 p.m. on the election day.

Another thing to keep in mind, you can’t change your party affiliation between April 1 and August 31.

“Voters need to be aware the deadline to change party affiliation is March 31, 2016”, said Amy Sims, Comanche County Election Board Secretary.” Voters will not be able to change party affiliation from April 1, thru August 31, 2016.”

You can pick up an application to change your party affiliation at any county election board or tag agency.
