The district urges all registered voters to participate in the election on Tuesday, June 26. Many local and statewide positions will be contested, and voters will consider an important state question.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and you can use the state's Online Voter Tool to:
Early voting: You can vote early at your county's courthouse on Thursday & Friday, June 21-22, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday, June 23 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The primary election on June 26 will determine who represents District 11 in the state House and is a key step in determining who might represent District 10.

Rep. Travis Dunlap is seeking re-election and will be facing Republican candidates Michael McFarland of Nowata and Judd Strom of Copan in the June 26 Republican primary. There will be a runoff primary for the Republican ticket on August 28 if needed. The winner will face Democrat Kevin Stacy in the November 6 general election.

Current Rep. Earl Sears is term-limited, so Republicans Derrel Fincher and Martin Garber will contest for that seat. Since there is no Democratic candidate, the winner of the June 26 Republican primary will represent the district in the next legislature.

Local voters who live in House Districts 10 or 11 can review the candidates' stances on various educational issues on pages 2-3 of the May 16, 2018 issue of The Bruin.

There are also online recordings of the public forum on education the district sponsored on May 22:
