OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Governor Brad Henry is asking Oklahomans to vote on which design will be on the state quarter.

A committee is sending to Henry ten designs and the governor is asking Oklahomans to help choose the five finalists that he'll submit to the US Treasury Department by September 29th.

The final design will be chosen by the US Mint from among the five submissions from the governor and the coin will be issued in early 2008.

Residents can see the ten designs and vote for five on Governor Henry's website. Voting will be open until September 20th.
