Saturday Early Voting is Very Heavy in Tulsa

Nov 3, 2012

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.
