Special

Henke faced Dan Arthrell (D) in the special election on April 3, 2012. Both candidates won primaries on February 14, 2011. The race took place in the state's new legislative districts.[8]

Note: This election was invalidated. The initial count gave Arthrell a three-vote lead over Henke. After a recount on April 11, Henke took the lead by one vote and the local election board certified the results. However, after the recount, two more ballots were found under a machine--both cast for Arthrell. On April 17, the Oklahoma Supreme Court put a stay on state certification until the court could review the results. On April 30, the Supreme Court ruled the election invalid, saying that the winner could not be determined with "mathematical certainty" as required by Oklahoma law. Given the approaching general election, another special election was not scheduled to fill the seat.[9][10][11][12]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Oklahoma

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Oklahoma scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
