Don Armes (b. July 31, 1961) is a Republican member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He has represented District 63 since 2002. He is current Deputy Majority Whip.

Armes is an auctioneer as well as a farmer and rancher. He and his wife, Dede, have two children: Katy and Kelsey.

Electronic books

Rep. Armes conducted a study to look into the possibility of using electronics devices instead of standard textbooks in the classroom. He hopes the switch will save schools money during the financial crisis burdening schools.

“Our children have already taken that giant leap into technology so this would not be an adjustment for them. Now we just need to see if it’s financially feasible,” said Armes, a Faxon Republican. “We have over 659,000 students in Oklahoma and if we could even save $10 per student on changing a book over to an electronic technology format, that would save over $6 million for Oklahoma schools.”[1]
