A busy 2014 political season formally kicks off this week in Oklahoma.
Elections for both of Oklahoma's U.S. Senate seats, the open 5th Congressional District seat are just a couple of the items that will be on the ballot.
One of the 300 elective positions up for grabs is the governor office.
Candidates will start arriving at the State Capitol on Wednesday to file paperwork and pay fees to have their names placed on the ballot.
Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says more than 500 people are expected to submit their names.
The three-day filing period begins Wednesday and ends Friday.
A total of 586 candidates filed for office during the filing period for the last gubernatorial election in 2010, including 391 - 67 percent - on the opening day.
