Oklahomans vote in special elections

Posted: Updated:

A number of special elections were held across Oklahoma on Tuesday.

CARTER COUNTY

Voters in the Ardmore City Schools district overwhelmingly approved a $44.1 million proposition that will add a new fine arts center, a gymnasium at Jefferson Elementary and a number of other improvements. A similar proposition last November failed by just 33 votes.

Healdton voters elected two City Council members: Josh Adams in Ward One and James Stubblefield in Ward Two.

Votes were also tallied for board members in the Velma-Alma and Wilson school districts, and a proposition failed in the Town of Springer.

BRYAN COUNTY

Two Bryan County school districts held bond elections on Tuesday. Colbert Public Schools was successful in its bid to raise $500,000 to increase technology and security. But voters in the Rock Creek Public Schools district, which also serves a portion of Atoka County, narrowly rejected a $1.5 million bond issue to build a new elementary building and other construction projects.

GARVIN COUNTY

Pauls Valley Public Schools can go forward with a $23.6 plan for a new elementary school building, a new band building, and improvements to the high school gym and the Ag-Ed building. Sixty-five percent of voters approved the bond proposal.
