Early voting is Thursday-Saturday in Ward 7 Oklahoma City Council runoff
Early voting is 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Oklahoma County Election Board, 4201 N Lincoln Blvd., (405) 713-1515, or its satellite location at Edmond Church of Christ, 801 S Bryant Ave. in Edmond.
The candidates are Nikki Nice and Kirk Pankratz. See a sample ballot here.
The winner will serve the remainder of the four-year term for the seat, which was vacated when the previous Council representative from Ward 7 resigned. The term ends in April 2021.
The seat is currently held by Councilman Lee E. Cooper Jr., who the Council appointed June 5 to fill the vacancy until the special election.
Pankratz and Nice earned the most votes in the primary special election on Aug. 28.
The Council is nonpartisan and members serve part-time at the head of the City’s Council-Manager form of government. The Mayor’s annual salary is $24,000, and Council members’ annual salary is $12,000.
The Ward 7 runoff on Nov. 6 is the same day as the statewide general election, but on a separate ballot.
All Ward 7 voters who were registered by the Oct. 12 deadline are eligible to vote in the runoff. See a Ward map at okc.gov/WardMap.

Acceptable forms of ID are a voter ID card, driver’s license or another form of ID issued by the federal government, state government or federally recognized tribal government. Voters may also cast a provisional ballot by proving their identity with a signed, sworn affidavit, which is available at the polling station.
