The Presidential Race

Donald Trump won Oklahoma with 65 percent of the vote, sweeping all counties by margins ranging from 11 percentage points in Oklahoma County to 83 percentage points in Cimarron County. His most decisive victories were in the northwestern and southeastern corners of the state. Hillary Clinton won only a small portion of precincts, all of them in urban areas.

The State Questions

Voters approved four questions and rejected three, with none of the votes close. Approved were questions related to criminal justice and incarceration, sales of wine and strong beer in grocery stores and protecting the state’s ability to carry out the death penalty. Rejected were an education sales tax, a constitutional right to farm, and removal of a constitutional clause on separation of church and state.
