TULSA - Hours into Election Day, thousands of registered voters have hit the polls in Tulsa County.
With just a few hours left before the polls close Tuesday, about 70 percent of Tulsa County's 350,000 registered voters have cast their ballots for president and in races in each of the state's congressional districts. There are also numerous legislative races, six state questions on the ballot and retention votes for various judges.
In all, nearly 11,000 people visited the Tulsa County Election Board during early voting. That's after thousands of absentee ballots were mailed.
Polls in Oklahoma are open until 7 p.m.
"If they haven't voted yet and they know they are registered to vote, they can go to their poll to vote," said Patty Bryant, Tulsa County Election Board secretary. "They're open until 7 p.m. and even if you're in line at 7 p.m. out the door, you still get to vote."
Voters should visit the precincts where they're registered. Oklahoma voters can show a photo ID or their voter ID card.
