The one-cent sales tax was first approved by voters in 1988. On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, they're being asked to approve a 10-year extension of the tax, which is set to expire on March 31, 2018.

In Creek County, Kiefer residents will vote on a $3.1 million bond issue that would fund construction of a new Kiefer Schools 4,5,6 Center. 

Muskogee County residents are voting on two separate propositions for Warner Schools - one is a $340,000 construction bond and the other is a $110,000 transportation bond. 

Okfuskee County has two bonds on the ballot for Wetumka Schools. Voters will vote on a $300,000 construction bond and a $95,000 transportation bond. 

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We will post election results on our website after we begin to receive results.
