|Evelyn L. Rogers||14%||335|
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.
