About the election

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 Oklahoma City Council has nine members: the Mayor, who is elected citywide, and one member representing each of Oklahoma City’s eight Wards.

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.
