OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma voters will see a record number of candidates on the ballot for next year’s presidential primary election.

The candidate filing period just wrapped up on Wednesday night.

According to the Oklahoma State Election Board, 21 candidates filed to be on the March ballot for Oklahoma’s presidential primary election.

In all, voters will choose from 15 Democrats and six Republicans, including President Donald Trump.
