So far, the Tulsa County Election Board confirms four issues with voting in the 2018 Primary Election this morning.

At Will Rogers United Methodist Church near 11th and South Yale, people are voting out of the back of poll worker's SUVs because workers are not able to get inside the building. It briefly delayed the scheduled start of voting at 7 a.m.

"We’re Okies, we make it work whatever goes, goes on we roll with it," said Kara McKee, a voter. "I’m amused and delighted that we’re still voting, that people aren’t turning around and leaving. That folks are waiting, that shows just how motivated people are to vote this year." 

Voting also started late at Jackson and Kerr Elementary Schools in Tulsa and Keystone Elementary School west of Sand Springs because poll workers were unable to get the buildings open. At Jackson Elementary, workers had to call a locksmith in.

Poll workers said 154 people were forced to vote from vehicles early Tuesday morning.
