A new Board for Luther

In unofficial returns, all incumbents on the Luther Town Board of Trustees have been unseated in the April 4, 2017, election. In the most dramatic result, the current mayor only received five votes. These are unofficial returns, subject to change upon counting and certification later this week by the Election Board.

Congratulations to all candidates on participating in the process and for your service.

UPDATE: REPORTS FROM ANDY MCDANIELS THAT THERE ARE PROVISIONAL VOTES TO BE CONSIDERED BY THE OKLAHOMA COUNTY ELECTION BOARD.

A provisional ballot is used to record a vote when there are questions about a given voter’s eligibility. A provisional ballot would be cast when: The voter refuses to show a photo ID (in regions that require one). The voter’s name does not appear on the electoral roll for the given precinct.

WE WILL FIND OUT WEDNESDAY THE PROCEDURE REGARDING THE PROVISIONAL BALLOTS, BUT WITH ONLY TWO VOTES SEPARATING MCDANIELS AND CAVIN, THIS LAST SEAT ON THE BOARD MIGHT BE IN QUESTION.

FOUR YEAR TERM:
Ron Johnson: 45
*Jenni White: 121

Mike McClure: 86
Andy McDaniels: 97
*Paxton Cavin: 99
Birlene Langley: 49
*Trandy Langston: 102

TWO YEAR TERM:
Carolyn Lawson: 48
Cecilia Taft: 5
Herbert Keith: 67
*Jason Roach: 91

Swearing in is scheduled later this month, and the new board’s first meeting will be on May 8, 2017, (unofficially) made up of Jenni White, Trandy Langston, Jason Roach, Paxton Cavin and incumbent Ron Henry.

The current board’s last meeting is scheduled next week, Tuesday, April 11, 2017.
