Oklahoma primary elections recap

election button

The Oklahoma primary elections with multiple run-off races are set for late August. Some notes:

1. SQ 788, the medical marijuana question, helped get voter turnout above 2014 and 2016 levels – will that continue for the run-off election?

2. At least six incumbent lawmakers lost and 10 are in run-off elections – is a larger wave coming in November? Or, are these intra-party and local issues surrounding each candidate?

3. Practically all statewide races are in run-off elections. In Oklahoma, the No. 2 finisher in the primary was strong in run-off races – will this continue?
