Early voting begins across the Texas Panhandle on Monday, and will run until election day, Nov. 2. This year’s midterm ballots hold a number of big-name races, including the races for Governor and one of the US Senate seats from the State of Texas.


Public school teachers are watching closely as Oklahoma gubernatorial candidates promote and debate their plans for improving health care, tax policy and education.

Jared Polis and Walker Stapleton squared off Friday morning inside of a barn in Kersey, just east of Greeley. The debate venue was so rustic, the tables in the barn were all equipped with fly swatters.

Here are three things that stuck with us after the debate.

We here at KUT spend a lot of time reminding you about the down-ballot races in an election. This season, we hosted City Council forums because local elections really affect your life the most.

But we know the big shiny races at the top of the ticket get more attention. So, here's what you need to know about the races everyone in the state gets a chance to vote on.

Constitutional Amendment 74 is one of the shortest measures on the Colorado ballot in November. In just two sentences, the proposal asks voters for more protections for private property rights and seeks payment for property owners if they’ve been wronged by government decisions.

The idea appeals to farmers like Marc Arnusch, who saw his wheat crop get hammered over the summer.

Residents of Amarillo and surrounding areas awake Saturday morning to jostling beds and rattling walls, as a magnitude 4.0 earthquake shook the region.

In this week's High Plains Outdoors, Luke discusses the importance of learning to properly use a compass and GPS units.

Whether in wild mountain country or out west of a 200-acre woodlot close to home, it's important to be able to find your way out of the woods and back to the truck.

Join Luke on the porch of his cabin today, relax and have some fun talking about the great outdoors.

As the 2018 election season hits a fever pitch in Oklahoma, residents across the state are scrutinizing the credentials of the candidates. And with November 6 just three weeks away, some new political concerns are coming to light.

When Oklahoma’s public radio stations started the Oklahoma Engaged series this spring, there was one big issue center stage in Oklahoma: education.

While education is still a crucial issue, other topics are percolating. In Northeastern Oklahoma, it is again the issue of water quality.

Doug Pagitt doesn't think the words "conservative" and "evangelical" have to go hand in hand.

He's an evangelical Christian pastor from Minneapolis who heads an effort called Vote Common Good. Pagitt and his compadres are on a marathon bus tour across the country encouraging voters in battleground Congressional districts to elect Democrats on Nov. 6.
