NOTE: The city of Tulsa went to nonpartisan elections in 2011. Under that system, if only one candidate files for an office, he or she would be elected. If only two people file for an office, they would meet in the Nov. 8 general election.
If more than two candidates file for an office, a primary would be held June 28. The two candidates whose vote totals in the primary account for a majority of the votes cast move on to the general election.
If two candidates do not receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary, the three or more candidates whose vote totals account for a majority of the votes cast move on to an Aug. 27 runoff. The top two candidates in the runoff move on to the general election.
