Polls are now open for Jackson County and other Oklahoma voters to cast ballots in runoff races across the state.

Party nominations will be decided for seats in the U.S. Senate and House and in several legislative contests.

On the ballot Tuesday will be State Officers for Superintendent of Public Instruction, John Cox and Freda Deskin. Congressional Officers for U.S. Senator unexpired term, Connie Johnson and Jim Rogers.

Democrats will choose a nominee for the U.S. Senate to face Republican U.S. Rep. James Lankford and for state Superintendent of Education to face GOP nominee Joy Hofmeister.

Both Democrats and Republicans will choose a nominee for the 5th Congressional District seat that was held by Lankford before he ran for and won the GOP nomination in the Senate race.

When voters go to the polls on Tuesday, it will be at their regular polling locations. Polls are open until 7 p.m. today.
