Races for city councils and school boards across Oklahoma will be decided in an election Tuesday.

In addition to runoffs for two open seats on the Oklahoma City Council, several council and mayoral races will be decided in Edmond, Norman, Mustang and Stillwater.

• In Oklahoma County, voters will pick a representative for the Deer Creek Schools board as well as for city councils and boards of trustees in Forest Park, Harrah, Luther and Valley Brook.

• The mayor of Nicoma Park will also be decided in a runoff election after neither candidate received a majority vote during the general election in March.

• Norman voters will also decide on an increase in taxes paid on hotel/motel room receipts. The proposal is to increase that tax from its current 1 percent to 5 percent.
