Oklahoma voters offer opinions on state questions

MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma voters are considering six proposed state questions on the general election ballot - ranging from property taxes and affirmative action to restructuring the Department of Human Services.

David Ellis in Moore said he voted to change the way DHS is governed because he believes it's time to reform the agency. Voter Jenifer Peacock said she voted to do away with affirmative action in state government because she believes it's an antiquated law.

Other questions are whether to limit the governor's role in the parole process, limit property tax increases to three percent annually, exempt intangible property from property taxes and allow the Oklahoma Water Resources Board to issue bonds.
