(Tulsa-AP) -- Questions ranging from school bonds to sales taxes to firefighter's wages will be on ballots across Oklahoma tomorrow.

Voters in Muskogee and Glenpool are being asked to approve sales taxes with the money to be used for capital improvements and economic development.

Ponca City voters will decide a labor dispute between the city and the International Association of Firefighters. City and union officials were unable to reach a wage agreement and city commissioners are putting the question before residents.

Several school districts are asking voters to approve issuing bonds. One of the largest is in the Bixby district where officials propose a more than 12 million dollar bond package.

The bonds would pay for construction at an elementary school, improvements at the football stadium and other projects.
