Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
DURANT, OK - Voters in Oklahoma will have to schedule a little more time to vote this November.
On this year’s ballot are eleven state questions, and some of those questions are as long as four paragraphs. Most of the referendums deal with proposed changes to the state constitution. One referendum deals with the language used for official actions of the state. The questions are forcing many Oklahoma counties to increase the number of pages in this year’s ballot.
"This year the state had a full back of questions so we had to make an additional ballot for county questions," said Linda Fahrendorf with the Bryan County Election Board.
Election officials say voting may take a little longer this year due to all of those state questions, so if at all possible voters are encouraged to vote early this November.
