OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- State election officials are preparing for a solid turnout during the first three days of early voting ahead of Tuesday's presidential primary election, when Oklahoma joins 11 other states as part of Super Tuesday.

Oklahoma voters can cast ballots at all 77 county election boards from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

For the first time in modern history in Oklahoma, registered independents will be able to vote in the Democratic Party primary, which features U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and four lesser-known candidates.

Republicans will choose from a dozen different GOP presidential candidates.

Oklahoma has 43 Democratic delegates and 42 Republican delegates up for grabs on Tuesday.
