The changes (when finalized) will turn city elections over to the Tulsa County Election Board and establish 4 year staggered terms for city commissioners. It had been hoped that the changes would be in effect for the upcoming city elections in April. City Manager Mike Tinker indicated the city may need to conduct one more election on its own as the cutoff date for notification to Tulsa County and the primary dates (March) for the April election do not match. Tinker indicated he would hand carry the city's proclamation to Govoner Henry in Oklahoma City when it was ready for signature. That should allow the 4 year staggered terms to be effective for the April election.
