School board members, school bond propositions and several other ballot measures will be decided by voters Tuesday during an annual statewide election.

Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at precincts in 70 of the state's 77 counties.

Voters in the Oklahoma City school district will decide a board chairman and two other four-year board members.

Countywide, voters will decide board members for Deer Creek, Harrah, Putnam City and Western Heights districts and will make decisions on bond propositions in Edmond, Harrah, Western Heights and Putnam City.

Lincoln County voters will decide on the extension of a countywide penny sales tax which has been on the books for 15 years.

Residents in four Oklahoma school districts will decide whether to annex or consolidate with neighboring districts and voters statewide will decide about nine different municipal and county questions and make a decision on a dozen different municipal offices.

In Edmond, voters will decide the fate of two bond propositions that together total $80 million.

The funds will support new elementary and middle schools, new buses and several other remodel and maintenance projects for the district.

School officials said Edmond area voters have supported 55 bond issues since 1959.

“The Edmond community has long valued quality schools for our children and passage of bond issues is a very significant investment toward that purpose,” Superintendent David Goin said.
