TULSA - Tulsa County Election Board workers are working extra hours as the deadline to register to vote approaches.
Election Board Secretary Patty Bryant says her offices have processed more than 6,600 applications in the last 10 days. More than 9,000 applications were processed in September.
"Anytime you have a presidential election it’s busier," she said. "That’s the election that most people vote in that don’t vote in other elections."
The office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday and 8 a.m. to midnight Friday. The deadline to register to vote absentee is October 31.
