The second race for a seat on the commission is a special election to fill the remainder of former commissioner Jeff Cloud's unexpired term, which ends in 2015. Cloud resigned from the commission in 2011, after which Gov. Mary Fallin appointed Patrice Douglas (R) to serve in his seat until the 2012 election. Douglas is now running unopposed for election to Cloud's seat.[2]
