Early voting continues in Tulsa County

TULSA - The Tulsa County Election Board is reporting that 6,093 people have have taken advantage of early voting.

Election officials added 15 extra booths to accommodate the crowd, but they say the turnout so far this year is lower than it was in 2008.

A long but fast-moving line still formed at the Election Board Saturday.

"This is awesome that so many people have decided to come out and exercise their right, be an American and vote for somebody in whatever position they're running," said voter Nancy Grable.

Early voting will continue Monday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

"I don't care if you're all the way down to 21st Street in line," said Election Board Secretary Patty Bryant. "If you're in line at 6 p.m., you will get to vote."

Bryant expects another large crowd then.

"Make us work," she said.

Polling places will officially open at 7 a.m. Tuesday.
