The distance between candidates for one Oklahoma City School Board seat has grown, while the gap between two candidates for another seat on the board has narrowed.
At 7:15 p.m., Steve Shafer led incumbent Joe Clytus by a margin of 51 to 49 percent for District 4.
But by 8 p.m., an hour after polls closed, voters had pushed Shafer to a lead of 55 percent over Clytus.
About one-third of the precincts in their district are reporting.
In the race for District 3, Phil Horning is still ahead of Tom Beall, but by a smaller margin. Horning’s previous lead of 63 percent shrunk to 54 percent.
Beall went from having 37 percent of the votes earlier in the evening up to 46 percent of the votes now.
Just more than half of the District 3 precincts are reporting.
