On May 2, Governor Mary Fallin (R) signed HB 1614, enacting the law to move the Oklahoma presidential primary from the first Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in March. The bill also continues to give the State Elections Board the ability to move the primary date if a regional primary involving the Sooner state's neighbors develops and as long as that date is some time on or after the first week in March.
Oklahoma now joins Virginia as another state to have moved its primary to March 6, 2012 during the 2011 state legislative session.
