Decision 2018: Texoma voting guide

Posted: Updated:

It's Election Day.

Voters in Texas and Oklahoma are choosing their next U.S. House members, governors, and other state executives. Texans will vote for one of their two U.S. Senate seats and a number of city and county races. Oklahomans will vote on a number of state ballot measures and local races in some communities.


Early voting for the 2018 midterm elections ended Friday in Texas. Election Day is Tuesday, November 6.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The statewide race receiving the most attention is the challenge Democratic U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke is mounting for the seat held by Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.


Early voting in Oklahoma ended Saturday in Oklahoma. Election Day is Tuesday, November 6. 

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. across the state. Oklahoma's top race is to replace term-limited GOP Gov. Mary Fallin. Republican businessman Kevin Stitt faces Democrat and former state attorney general Drew Edmondson. Neither of Oklahoma's U.S. Senate seats are up for re-election, but all five of the state's U.S. House seats are. You will need to bring a photo identification.

Several Oklahoma school districts will be closed on Election Day. In Texoma, these include: Ada, Byng, Durant and Stringtown.
