Two Oklahoma City Council seats and several important municipal positions in Edmond, Norman, Mustang and Stillwater will be decided at an election next week.

Early voting for the election will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and continues the same time Monday at county election board offices across the state.

Voters in Oklahoma City will decide whether to maintain the current makeup of the city council or to replace two incumbent candidates with challengers.

Incumbents Gary Marrs and Ronald “Skip” Kelly face challengers James Greiner and John A. Pettis Jr, respectively, in a runoff after no candidate received a majority vote during a more crowded general election in March.

Also, there will be a runoff for a seat on the Deer Creek School Board. Jerrod Roberts and Keri Shipley will vie for one open position.

Other races to be decided Tuesday include a mayor and three members of the city council in Norman, a mayor and council seat in Edmond, a council post in Mustang and two council positions in Stillwater.

Voters statewide will also decide on several bond issues, tax propositions and one city charter change.

Regular precinct polling stations will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday for the election.
