Only 4,500 signatures were required.

Walton said that speaks to the concerns of Rogers County residents.

"We made it available, and they came to headquarters or sought out those they knew had petitions, so it was a very easy effort," Walton said.

The election board has a week to certify the signatures, which were sealed by a judge.

A judge will have 30 days to convene the grand jury.
