For the third time in less than two years, Elk City voters have approved changes to their charter.
The previous two times, the governor voided the vote because the city did not properly follow the law in announcing the election.
Tuesday's vote was significant because it allowed voters the chance to pick and choose the changes they wanted to make - city leaders said that to follow the law, they had to break up each amended section into separate questions on the ballot. All of the choices were approved overwhelmingly, but some had more support than others. On average, 80 percent of voters supported every change to the charter.
In all, 6,825 voters living inside city limits went to the poll on election day.
