It's been a big year for Oklahoma, from the teacher walkout to debates about state audits, spending and what is on the ballot. Nearly 100 educators and administrators are running for seats in the Oklahoma Legislature.

Voters will also narrow down options for governor and vote on State Question 788.

There are more candidates running for seats this year than in prior years and that is why officials say more than 7,000 have registered to vote in today's primary, compared to the almost 3,000 in 2016. 

To confirm your voter registration, find your polling place and view a sample ballot before you head out to vote, you can use the Oklahoma State Election Board online voter tool.
