Election Coverage & Voter Information

City of Tulsa Non-Partisan Races

Tulsans voted for a charter change making municipal elections nonpartisan, a.k.a. no party affiliation listed and no single-party primary. So, how will this new, nonpartisan election work? The 2 candidates with the most votes on June 11 will advance to the November 12 general election. The exception is if one of the candidates carries a simple majority (51%) on June 11; that person will be declared winner and will be sworn-in in December.
