Voters across northeast Oklahoma head to the polls Tuesday, deciding on everything from school bond issues to runoff elections.

In Tulsa County, the big items on the ballot concern proposed improvements at the Tulsa County jail and a juvenile justice center.

Proposition One calls for a $.041 sales tax increase for the county's juvenile justice center.

Proposition Two is a $.026 sales tax increase for improvements to the jail.

Proposition One/Two Sample Ballots

There is some opposition to the jail improvement proposition.
