Primary: Oklahoma has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.

Voter registration: Voters had to register to vote in the primary June 1. For the August 28 runoff, the voter registration deadline was August 3. For the general election, the voter registration deadline is October 12.[1]

See also: Oklahoma elections, 2012

Incumbent: Heading into the election the incumbent is John Sullivan, who has served since 2003.

This will be the first election using new district maps based on 2010 Census data. Oklahoma's 1st congressional district is located in the northeastern portion of the state and includes Washington, Tulsa, Rogers, Creek, and Wagoner counties.[2]

Sullivan was defeated by challenger Jim Bridenstine in the GOP primary.[3] The day of the primary, Sullivan said he had made a mistake by ignoring the primary challenge for too long. "I never had a race like this in all my life," he said.[4]

This is the 3rd congressional district prior to the 2010 redistricting.
