State Auditor

The 2010 State Auditor and Inspector election was the first election for the office of State Auditor and Inspector since former Democratic State Auditor Jeff McMahan was forced to resign in 2008 due to corruption charges.

Governor Brad Henry appointed fellow Democrat Steve Burrage to serve out the remainder of McMahan's unexpired term. Burrage then sought a full term in office but lost to Gary Jones, who was making his third run for the office.

Article 6, Section 19 of the Oklahoma Constitution places one additional requirement upon the State Auditor and Inspector beyond the other constitutional requirements for those seeking statewide offices: s/he must have at least 3 years prior experience as an "expert accountant" before seeking office. (The term "expert accountant" is not defined but is generally understood to require that the officeholder must be a certified public accountant.)
