Voters in the Deer Creek and Crooked Oak school districts will decide Tuesday the fate of several million dollars worth of bond issues.

Elsewhere, residents of Spencer will elect three representatives to the city council while residents of Moore consider renewing the city's franchise agreement with Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at precincts throughout the state for the elections.

School officials in Deer Creek are looking for voters to approve $5 million in construction bonds that would finalize a series of additions and new construction projects that started in 2009.

The district, located in northwest Oklahoma County, added on to the high school and administrative offices and built a new elementary school, performing arts and athletics center with the initial bond, which totaled $142.1 million, Superintendent Ranet Tippens said.

The new proposal, if approved, would finance equipment purchases to outfit the new and renovated buildings and would not bring about an increase in property taxes to district residents, Tippens said.

A proposed $12 million bond issue at Crooked Oak would allow the school district to build a new high school and replace the roof on its library and cafeteria.
