Where no candidate gets a majority of the vote, the top two finishers will have a runoff on August 23

U.S. Senate

Both Oklahoma Senate seats are on the ballot this year. In the regularly-scheduled election, Sen. James Lankford is expected to be renominated for a second full term. Six are vying for the Democratic nomination and almost certain defeat in November.

The other seat is held by five-term Sen. Jim Inhofe, who announced in February that he would retire at the end of the year. The winner of the special election in November will complete the final four years of his term. 

13 Republicans are competing for the nomination. The clear frontrunner is Rep. Markwayne Mullin (OK-02). The main question here is whether Mullin can clear 50% to avoid an August 23 runoff against the second place finisher. The ultimate winner will be heavily favored against former Rep. Kendra Horn (D) in November.  

Governor

Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt is seeking a second term. He has three primary opponents, but is expected to win renomination. Two Democrats are seeking their party's nomination; the winner will have a very difficult time unseating Stitt in this deep red state.

 

U.S. House

These elections will take place under redistricted boundaries. All are safe for Republicans in the general election. 

Only one Democrat filed in each of the five districts. As a result, there are no party primaries. Likewise, Republican Kevin Hern is the nominee in District 1.

Incumbents in District 3, District 4, and District 5 have each drawn a nominal primary challenge.

That leaves District 2, where incumbent Rep. Markwayne Mullin is retiring to run in the U.S. Senate special election. A large field of 14 is looking to succeed him. With that many on the ballot, an August 23 runoff is highly probable.
