On the last day to file as a candidate for political office in November, all 132 open offices have at least one candidate. There are many incumbents who are unchallenged, though.
The deadline to file is at 5 p.m. and election officials expect last minute filers to come later in the day.
Only one candidate has filed so far Friday morning. Aaron Kaspereit, a drama teacher at Midwest City High School, put his name on the list of candidates for House District 88.
Kaspereit challenged incumbent Rep. David Dank in 2010 for House District 85 and lost, but redistricting put him in a district without an incumbent.
He is the sixth candidate and second Republican to file for the seat left vacant by former Rep. Al McAffrey, a Democrat, when he ran for and won Senate District 46.
Kaspereit said once in office he will work to give school districts more flexibility and autonomy to implement the things they see as priorities.
“I’ve got a moderate enough view that I’ll appeal to the Democrats,” Kaspereit said.
He filed Friday before heading down to Norman to watch his students compete in the state drama competition.
