Eight judges are up for re-election.

There are two state questions. State Question 805 would except and does not apply to persons who have ever been convicted of a violent felony. It would prohibit the use of a former felony conviction to increase the statutorily allowable base range of punishment for a person subsequently convicted of a felony.

State Question No. 375 would change how money is distributed from the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust Fund. Currently, 75 percent of the proceeds go to TSET and 25 percent goes to the state legislature.

If approved, 75 percent would be allocated to the legislature while only 25 percent would go to the TSET, which is only supposed to use funds for tobacco prevention programs, cancer research, and other such programs to maintain or improve the health of Oklahomans.

If the measure passes, money from the Legislative Fund must be used to get federal matching funds for Oklahoma’s Medicaid program.
