Local Ethics Laws [County, Municipal and School Board]


Laws governing campaigns for local office --- including county, municipal and school board --- and the ethical conduct of county officers and employees, together with related statutes include, but are not limited to, the following:

● Sections 187, 187.1 and 187.2 of Title 21 of the Oklahoma Statutes;

● Sections 334 and 360 of Title 21 of the Oklahoma Statutes;

● Section 2358.3 of Title 68 of the Oklahoma Statutes; 

● Section 4260 of Title 74 of the Oklahoma Statutes; and

● Sections 301 through 325 of Title 51 of the Oklahoma Statutes.

The Ethics Commission has jurisdiction over the Political Subdivisions Ethics Act [the "Act"] as it pertains to campaigns for county office, county officers and employees, and county propositions (ballot measures) only. The Commission has no jurisdiction, other than to provide reporting forms, over the Act as it pertains to campaigns for municipal and school board office. The Act specifically excludes a municipal election involving a utility franchise from its reporting provisions.

The Ethics Commission has no jurisdiction to enforce criminal penalties under Title 21 and penalties for violating statutes governing municipal and school board campaigns. Local district attorneys are the enforcement authorities for these provisions.
