OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin has set a special election date in the spring for the court clerk of Oklahoma County.

Fallin issued an executive proclamation Tuesday setting the special election dates after Court Clerk Tim Rhodes announced he was stepping down. Rhodes has accepted the position as director of administration for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

The filing period for the special election will be Dec. 7-9, with a special primary election March 1, and a special general election on April 5. If a primary is not necessary, the special general election will be held March 1.

The Oklahoma County court clerk presides over the largest and busiest court clerk’s office in the state, with about 120,000 new court cases filed each year.
