  • Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today for the Ward 6 Shawnee city commission election as well as the Republican and Democratic primaries in many state and federal races.
    Three candidates — Incumbent Steven C. Smith, along with Larry G. Smith and Michael Dykstra — are vying for that Ward 6 Shawnee commission seat.
    There also are several state primaries being decided today, with more of those falling on the Republican ballots.
    Republican primary races will include the office of District 27 State Representative, where the candidates are Incumbent John Cockroft and Lani Habrock.
    For the State Senator District 28 Republican Primary, voters will choose between Jason Smalley, Danny Williams, Charles C. Mashek, Joe Dobry and Michael Ballard.
    In the Republican primary for U.S. Representative, District 5, voters have a field of six candidates — Shane David Jett, Patrice Douglas, Mike Turner, Steve Russell, Harvey Sparks and Clark Jolley.
    For the unexpired term of U.S. Senator, seven candidates are in that race — Andy Craig, T.W. Shannon, Randy Brogdon, Eric C. McCray, Kevin Crow, James Lankford and Jason Weger.
    For the office of U.S. Senator, candidates on that Republican ballot are Evelyn L. Rogers, Rob Moye, D. Jean McBride-Samuels, Jim Inhofe and Erick Paul Wyatt.
    Republicans also will vote in the state superintendent and corporation commission race, along with the primary for governor.
    Democratic voters also have several primary races.
    For State Senator District 28, Marilyn Rainwater and Billy Hinton are on the Democratic ballot.
    For the unexpired term of U.S. Senator, there’s a field of three Democrats — Patrick Michael Hayes, Jim Rogers and Connie Johnson.
    For U.S. Representative for District 5, Democrats will decide between Tom Guild, Al McAffrey and Leona Leonard.
    Democrats also will vote in the state superintendent primary.
    In Lincoln County, voters will cast ballots in some of the same state and federal races, but Republicans there also will decide a primary for the District 1 Lincoln County commissioner race. Incumbent Don E. Sporleder has a Republican opponent in Joe Brockamp.
    Those who vote at Grove School at Bryan and MacArthur Streets in Shawnee are reminded that they will have some road construction and detour issues to contend with to get there, but once there, voters should enter the west gate entrance.
    Diana Knight, Pottawatomie County Election Board secretary, also reminds voters to take their voter identification cards to the polls today. In the alternative, voters can bring an unexpired photo ID card issued by the U.S. government, the state of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government.
