After several municipal and school board elections across the state, today’s podcast breaks down results of Carter County races precinct-by-precinct. The Oklahoma State Election Board makes most of this available on their website, or a Carter Observer analysis will be available later this week.
Election results remain unofficial until certified on Friday.
The next election in Carter County will be on May 9, when voters in the Fox school district will decide on a roughly $2 million bond issue.
The Ardmoreite reports that the Ardmore City Commission on Monday approved an $8.2 million bid for a wastewater treatment facility at the Ardmore Airpark. While City Hall is usually pretty good about posting recordings of public meetings to their social media, their Facebook account told me on Tuesday that they’re still working to make a recording available.
The National Weather Service in Norman has placed Carter County and much of the state under a Hazardous Weather Outlook due to an elevated risk of fire weather. While the most dangerous areas are to the north and west, Carter County Emergency Management reminded social media that “Mother Nature doesn’t know where county lines are.”
Winds are expected to gust upwards of 20 mph on Wednesday.
Are you upset by the low turnout during municipal elections? Were your local elections uncontested? The podcast will return on Friday with some information to help you get involved locally.
