Saturday Early Voting is Very Heavy in Tulsa
Early voting is under way in Oklahoma.
Voters could begin casting in-person absentee ballots Friday morning at all 77 county election board offices across the state.
4,000 voters lined up Friday outside the Tulsa County Election Board office to cast a ballot.
On Saturday morning, voters were lined from the Election Board, down Denver Avenue and then back east on West Edison.
State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says voting runs until 1 p.m. Saturday and from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday.
Ziriax says Oklahoma's new voter ID law requires voters to show a valid government issued photo ID or state-issued election card. Otherwise, voters may cast provisional ballots that will be counted after the voter's registration is verified.
