There is an empty spot in Oklahoma Supreme court that attracted seven candidates among whom are six from the state court.
The empty spot was created when John R. Reif retired, and it is for nine counties in Northern Oklahoma.
Governor of Oklahoma, Kevin Stitt, will be in charge of deciding the next justice. Stitt is the 28th governor of Oklahoma, and he has been on the position since January. Furthermore, he will have to choose one of the three possible candidates that will be forwarded to him by the Judicial Nominating Commission. Most of the work by JNC is done out of public view.
The new justice will probably be someone from District 1, and the Supreme Court districts of Oklahoma will be remade next year.
