Oklahoma 2012 Election Results LIVE: Romney Wins Oklahoma, Loses Election

This Tuesday Oklahomans will join the rest of the nation in the long awaited 2012 elections. Given the conservative nature of Oklahoma, Romney is sure to win this state. Living in Oklahoma, I have not seen a single presidential election ad on the television at all. This has been quite a blessing considering politics has invaded every other aspect of my life. In the 2008 election, Obama did not win a single county in Oklahoma. This outcome is expected again for this election.

Oklahoma has 5 house districts which have been apportioned after the 2010 census. All seats will be voted for this election cycle.

Neither of Oklahoma’s Senate seats are up for election this year.

While people in Oklahoma are concerned about the presidential election, it has not been a major reason for bringing people out to the polls. Everyone just assumes that Romney will win Oklahoma hands down. In Stillwater, OK, the main thing I have been hearing about is Proposition 2, which is on the Payne County ballot. If approved Proposition 2, nicknamed by some the Funday Sunday Proposition, will allow the selling of alcoholic beverages in restaurants on Sundays. Payne County can at least count on a high college student turn out.
