Tulsa voters to decide mayoral race
TULSA (KFAQ) - Tulsa voters are preparing to go to the polls on Tuesday to decide who should be mayor. There are five candidates running in the city's first non-partisan election. Among them are current mayor Dewey Bartlett, former mayor Kathy Taylor and former city councilor Bill Christiansen.
If none of the candidates receives a simple majority of the votes, the top two candidates will move on to a general election in November. If one of the candidates receives a simple majority, they would become the next mayor.
There are just under 199,000 eligible voters in the city. The Tulsa County Election board predicts anywhere from 30,000 to 45,000 of them will actually go to the polls. Polls open on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
