Candidate filing will be 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on April 8, 9 and 10 with a drive-thru option for people to submit paperwork and filing fees in south parking lot at the state Capitol, 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd, OKC. The OK State Election Board said they are encouraging candidates to file by mail. Please find a candidate filing packet, list of filing fees and more info at You must pay with a cashier’s or certified check. The deadline to file is 5 p.m. on April 10 – no exceptions. Please don’t wait until the last minute to file and be prepared with copies of a short bio and dress to take a possible photo by the media.

The Secretary of the State Election Board will review information emailed in advance to and advise candidates if their filing packet is correct.

Please let me know now if you are running or you know a potential candidate. Canadian County will help with filing fees in races without a primary (when more than one Democrat files for the same offices). I will also try to meet you at the Capitol – and maybe ride through in your vehicle if you want.

Canadian County Democrats will be voting on candidates for these 2020 races, plus Gov. Stitt must schedule a vote of the people on Medicaid expansion.
