Oklahoma Bond election results are in

Voters decided on a $3.5 million bond to allow storm shelters to be built within some Sallisaw schools.

OKLAHOMA, USA — In Sallisaw, voters decided on a big project for the school system and the results are in. 

The $3.5 million bond issue failed for storm shelters to be built at the high school, middle school and both Eastside and Liberty elementary schools. 

In LeFlore County, voters in Heavener and Howe decided if Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OGE) can continue to distribute electricity within the cities.

The bond passed with a majority vote in Howe and Heavener. Sallisaw, however, cut it close with 52% voting no and 48% voting yes.
