2018 Oklahoma state elections

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Seal of Oklahoma.svg
This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Oklahoma

A general election was held in the U.S. state of Oklahoma on November 6, 2018. All of Oklahoma's executive officers were up for election as well as the state's five seats in the United States House of Representatives, half of the 48 seats in the Oklahoma Senate and all 101 seats in the Oklahoma House, and five offices in each of Oklahoma's 77 counties. Voter turnout was 42.5% of the eligible population, a 12.6% increase over the 2014 midterms but still the third lowest in the nation.[1]

Due to Gary Johnson's results in the 2016 presidential election, the Oklahoma Libertarian Party had ballot status to run candidates in 2018.[2] This was the first time an alternative party has been able to participate in mid-term elections in the state since 1998. Five independent candidates, led in a loosely coordinated effort by former Oklahoma Democratic Party chair Ivan Holmes, challenged for statewide executive offices. [3]

The ballot order was determined by random drawing for placement of candidates by party. Results of the drawing on July 12 were that Libertarian candidates would be placed first, Republicans second, and Democrats third.[4] By statute, Independents are always listed after partisan candidates.

State questions

State questions are ballot propositions to proposed either a legislative measure or an amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution. State questions are filed with the Oklahoma Secretary of State by either order of the legislature (termed a "legislative referendum") or directly by the people of Oklahoma (termed an "initiative petition"). The secretary of state assigns a number to the state question and notifies the State Election Board of the propositions submission. The governor, by executive proclamation, sets the election date for submission of the state questions to the people.
