2022 Oklahoma Primaries are underway as residents hit the polls in Miami

MIAMI, Okla. – Oklahoma residents today hit the polls to decide on candidates in the first state-wide election since 2020.

In Miami, more than 10 polling places are available for residents to cast their ballots. Officials say the polls close at 7:00 p.m.

“The primaries are important because you have to have the best way to sniff out the best candidate for each party to the general election,” said Poll Worker Kay Bonan- Harvey. “So not only we’ll have an election today, in all likelihood, we’ll have a runoff for the senate seat.”
