OKLAHOMA CITY -

Elections for both of Oklahoma's U.S. Senate seats, the open 5th Congressional District seat and statewide seats including governor will highlight a busy 2014 political season that formally kicks off this week.

Candidates will start arriving at the State Capitol on Wednesday to file paperwork and pay fees to have their names placed on the ballot.

Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says more than 500 people are expected to submit their names as candidates for one of the more than 300 elective positions that are up for grabs. The board's three-day filing period begins Wednesday and ends Friday.

A total of 586 candidates filed for office during the three-day filing period for the last gubernatorial election in 2010, including 391 -- 67 percent -- on the opening day.
