CLAREMORE — Some voters in Rogers County will cast ballots today for a school bond and choosing nominees for the District 2 Congressional race. 

The voting will be for 30 of the 36 precincts in Rogers County and both Republicans and Democrats have candidates on the ballot.
All voters in the Justus-Tiawah School District that vote at precincts 19, 5, 13, 18 will want to vote on the school bond issue, according to Julie Dermody, Election Board Secretary.
The Justus-Tiawah school bond issues will be used to fund $250,000 in transportation needs for the elementary school and $4,150,000 for construction of a gymnasium.
Additionally, the transportation bond will be used to purchase three new buses, he explained.
Markwayne Mullin and George Faught will be representing the Republican Party.
The Democrat candidates for Oklahoma’s 2nd Congressional District are Wayne Herriman and Rob Wallace. 
A competitive race that has dwindled the field from nine candidates to four will bring forth the challengers for Independent Michael Fulks.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
