Live Results: Oklahoma City Mayor, Arkansas State Senate Special Election

We're following two elections this Tuesday. Overview and live results below.

Oklahoma City Mayor

Oklahoma City is the 22nd largest city in the United States,1 1City rankings are based on July 1, 2020 Census Bureau population estimates. They are for the city itself, not the associated metropolitan area. with a population of just over 681,000.  The mayor is David Holt, who is seeking a second four-year term. 

Holt is a Republican, although the election is technically nonpartisan (NPA in the results table). He has three challengers on the ballot. The only public poll of the race, released in December, was sponsored by the mayor's campaign. It showed him earning 61% of the vote, with all of the other candidates in single digits. 

The mayor is apparently confident enough in his reelection prospects that he was the only candidate that did not participate in a January 25 debate. A photograph of Holt on an empty podium was on display at that event.

In the event Holt doesn't get a majority of the vote Tuesday, he will face the 2nd place finisher in an April 5 runoff.

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Arkansas State Senate District 7

Republicans hold a lopsided 26-7 margin over Democrats in the 35-person Arkansas State Senate. There is one independent. Term length is four years, except two years for the election that precedes a redistricting - as was the case in 2020. The 2022 elections will be contested using redistricted boundaries. Those will be for four years terms, as will the ones in 2026. 

District 7 is in the northwest part of the state. Republican Lance Eads resigned in October to take a private sector job. Eads was serving in his second term, having run unopposed in the general election in 2016 and 2020.

The nominees are Republican Colby Fulfer and Democrat Lisa Parks. Polls close at 8:30 PM Eastern Time.
