Election Day: Voters Head to Polls to Decide on School Issues

Posted: Updated:

November elections may have come and gone just a few months a go, but Tulsa voters are heading to the polls Tuesday morning to make their decisions on another issue -- schools and education.

Beginning at 7 a.m. parents, faculty and Green Country residents will head to their designated precincts where they will vote on school board members and two bond issues.

Patty Bryant with the Tulsa County Election Board offered area votes some tips on how to make their vote count on Tuesday. They include:

   - Fill-in ballots correctly

   - Bring proof of identification (federal, state or tribal government)

   - Voter identification/temporary identification accepted

   - Voter identification/temporary voter identification document

   - Voter's name and proof of identity must match

So with those helpful tips in mind, just what are some of the issues being voted on? They are:

   - School board races in Berryhill, Liberty, Jenks and Union Schools

   - Jenks Bond Vote: 10.8 million dollars for buildings and books. Second proposition for $700,000 in new buses

   - Union Bond Vote: 20 million for buildings, books and furniture

   - Races in Rogers County
