Within Oklahoma there are two types of municipal governments: cities and towns. Population determines which type of government is in place. Both are municipal corporations in that they can both sue and be sued, may own and sell property, create debt, and may levy and collect taxes. They are the most basic level of government in Oklahoma and are also the most accessible.
The term of office of all municipal official is four years with elections held on the first Tuesday of April of each odd-numbered year.
Including both cities and towns, Oklahoma has 589 municipalities.
