NORMAN — Voting was reported light at precincts throughout Cleveland County early today.
At Pct. 42, University Lutheran Church, precinct voters warmly greeted the second voter at 8 a.m. Similar stories were heard from other precinct officials. Snow began falling at mid-morning.
“The weather may keep folks in,” said Holly Jack, election board employee.
She knew of no problems with voting.
Election board secretary Jim Williams said a combination of inclement weather and the fact that the Norman school board seat only involved voters in 13 precincts may be keeping numbers low.
Norman and Moore school district and technology center district voters are all eligible to vote today. Voters in the 13 Norman precincts will select between Gary Barksdale and Cindy Nashert for seat 3 of the Norman School Board.

Moore Norman Technology Center voters have three items on the ballot today. Voters will choose between candidates Tammy Maus and Andy Sherrer, decide whether to add an additional mill to the current four-mill levy and, pending the mill addition, whether it will be a permanent adjustment. The increase is expected to add an estimated $1.7 million to the school’s budget. Superintendent Jane Bowen said the additional funds will bolster facility remodeling, construction, equipment purchases and potentially teacher salaries.
