The current treasurer of Oklahoma is Ken Miller. He was first elected to the position in November, 2010 and assumed office on January 10, 2011.
The Oklahoma Treasurer is elected every years, in mid-term elections. The position is elected in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018.
On March 14, 2011, the Oklahoma State Senate approved a bill that would give the governor the power to appoint 7 of the 11 statewide elected officials, including the treasurer. The Senate would have to confirm all appointments. Voters will decide whether to approve the measure.
No person may serve as the Oklahoma Treasurer for more than 8 years, excluding years served for less than a full term to fill a vacancy in the office.
Under Article 6, Section 13 of the state constitution, in the event of a vacancy in the office the governor appoints a person to serve until a successor is either elected or appointed and qualified by law.
