Incumbent candidates for city council in Oklahoma City and Norman were voted out of office Tuesday during statewide municipal elections.

In Edmond, Mustang and in the Norman mayoral race the exact opposite was true: Incumbent candidates were re-elected by a wide margin.

In addition to municipal seats, Tuesday's election also stood as a runoff date for several previously undecided school board races.

Among two new prospective candidates for school board for Deer Creek Schools, district patrons chose Jerrod Roberts.

And voters also made some important decisions Tuesday on school bonds, sales tax propositions and other ballot questions.

Voters in Altus opted to draft a new city charter; patrons of the Hinton, Cement, Earlsboro and Davenport school districts approved construction and transportation bonds; and voters in Perkins and Stroud both opted to boost their sales tax for city improvements.

Voters in Norman also decided to boost their hotel/motel tax from 4 to 5 percent of gross receipts.
