We are a few days from the midterm elections, and early voting already has started.

The Oklahoma State Election Board says more than 73,000 people cast their ballots as of 2 p.m. on Thursday.

In Tulsa County, more than 8,300 voted early as of 3:30 p.m. on Friday. Election board officials say this compares to the total 17,857 votes during the three-day early voting period in the 2016 general election.

In Rogers County, election board officials also say voter turnout is high. Since Thursday, more than 3,244 people have voted early. During the general election in 2016, more than 5,000 people voted in three days.

The majority of voters in both counties have been Republican.

The last day to vote is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
