OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- State Election Board Secretary Mike Clingman orders recounts in two judicial elections and a hearing to review alleged irregularities in a third judicial race.

The action was requested by candidates who apparently lost their races in the November 7th general election. The candidates requested the action on the final day for challenging the results.

Pat Crawley, a candidate for district judge in Oklahoma County, requested a re-count of her race against District Judge Vicki Robertson. Robertson apparently defeated Crawley by 3,332 votes.

Suzanne Woodrow, a candidate for associate district judge in McClain County, requested a re-count in her race against Charles Gray. Gray apparently won by 26 votes. Both recounts will be conducted on Friday.

In addition, Clingman ordered a hearing in the race between District Judge Dynda Post, who serves Rogers, Mayes and Craig counties, and challenger Dale Marler. Post apparently won by 168 votes.

No date was set for the hearing.
