State races: Cleveland County voters, depending on where they live, will select a state representative. State representatives are elected every two years.
The candidates for State Senate District 15, which includes much of Norman, are Republican Rob Standridge and Democrat Claudia Griffith.
In the Slaughterville area included in State House District 20, the candidates are Republican Bobby Cleveland and Democrat Matt Branstetter.
In the Little Axe area included in State House District 27, the candidates are Republican incumbent Josh Cockroft and Democrat Randy R. Gilbert.
In State House District 45, voters can choose between incumbent Republican Aaron Stiles and Democratic challenger Paula Roberts.
County races: While many county offices were determined during the primary or runoff, voters will elect a Cleveland County court clerk and a sheriff.
Republican challenger Mitchell Slemp and incumbent Democrat Rhonda Hall are running for court clerk.

State questions: Out of the six state questions on the ballot, two are related to ad valorem taxes.
State Question No. 758 restricts annual ad valorem increases. The measure lowers the limits on increases in fair cash value. Now, increases are limited to 5 percent of fair cash value in any taxable year. This would further restrict the limit to 3 percent per year on homestead exempted property and agricultural land.
