The vote on the quarter begins today and ends at 5 p.m. April 27.
You may look at the designs and vote for your choice by going to this Web site: www.gov.ok.gov/coin.php. One vote per computer is allowed.
People without easy access to the Internet can mail their preference to:

Office of the Governor, Suite 212
State Capitol Building
Oklahoma City, OK 73105
This continues a design selection process that Gov. Brad Henry came up with last year to let Oklahomans have the final word on the quarter’s design.
The process began last year, when two committees reviewed hundreds of designs submitted by Oklahomans and subsequently agreed on 10 final proposals. The governor asked Oklahomans to choose the five finalists that were then submitted to the Treasury Department.
The five designs are representations of the Pioneer Woman statue in Ponca City, gushing oil derricks, waving wheat, a windmill, the scissortail flycatcher (the state bird), Gaillardia (the state wildflower) and an American Indian peace pipe.
