Election process

Only District Court candidates compete in the primary election. If two candidates compete for one seat, their names will appear on the ballot for the general election. If more than two candidates file for one seat, they will compete in a primary election. If one candidate receives a majority of the votes, that candidate is elected and does not need to run in the general election. If no one receives a majority of the votes, the two candidates with the most votes will compete against each other in the general election.[1] Unopposed candidates do not appear on the ballot.[2]

Results

Results for all races can be found on the Oklahoma State Election Board website.
