Oklahoma special election returns
(KTEN) — Tuesday was Election Day in some southern Oklahoma communities.
In Carter County, Fox Public Schools asked taxpayers to approve a more than $2 million bond for construction and remodeling campuses. The same bond was proposed earlier this year, but with a near $22 million price tag.
With only 54 percent approval, the bond failed to pass for the second time after failing to meet the requirements of a 60 percent super majority.
Tishomingo taxpayers were heavily in favor of a proposition that would secure OG&E's investments in electrical service for the next quarter century; 88 percent of voters were in favor of the proposal.
And Ada residents overwhelmingly approved renewal of a one-cent sales tax that will be used to fund improvement projects at Wintersmith and other parks; 73 percent of voters agreed to the proposition.
