This story suggests that Oklahoma legislators have not yet decided whether to move the non-presidential primary from July to June, or whether to eliminate the runoff primary. The legislature must choose one of these options before it adjourns this year. The existing system cannot survive, because of the federal law that requires foreign absentee ballots to be mailed at least 45 days before an election. Current law has too little time between the primary and the runoff primary.
The legislature will adjourn for the year in mid-May or late May. If the legislature moves the non-presidential primary to June, the same bill moves the petition for a new party to March 1, which would be unconstitutionally early.
