Cathi Edwards

Incumbent Cathi Edwards came out of the gate strong.

When the first few precincts began reporting results for the Rogers County Court Clerk position, Edwards established a strong lead.

With four of 38 precincts reporting Edwards had 1,510 votes to Kim Legate's 773 and Donna Stripling's 647.

With half of the precincts tallied, she held just over 50 percent of the total votes.

She ended the night with 55.41 percent of the votes, or 6,227 votes to Legate's 19.93 percent and Stripling's 24.66 percent.

At the end of the night, Edwards told the Progress she was grateful.

"I am immensely grateful to my family, friends and loyal supporters who so generously contributed their time and efforts to the Keep Cathi Edwards Campaign. I am deeply moved by the expression of confidence from Rogers County and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart," she said.

Edwards said when she saw the number of votes cast for her she was completely floored.

About the campaign process overall, the incumbent said: "The support I have received, as the current Court Clerk of Rogers County has been amazing. I usually have an easy time meeting and speaking to people which is a blessing but the pandemic changed the whole dynamics of what I had planned to do to get the word out to 'Keep Cathi Edwards as Court Clerk'; Through mailers, signs and social media I feel that we were able to contact many potential voters. While the state was on lockdown we spent our time making signs, lots and lots of pink signs. Since the state has begun the reopening process we were back on track with our original plan.
