TULSA, Okla. — Oklahoma voters set a record for the 2020 election for the most votes ever cast for President in Oklahoma history.

According to the Secretary of the State Election Board Paul Ziriax, Oklahomans set records in early voting and absentee ballots.

I am delighted about the enthusiasm and engagement shown by Oklahoma voters in this election. We saw a surge in voter registrations, set a record for mail absentee ballots and in-person absentee "early" votes, and had heavy turnout on Election Day. Oklahoma voters set a record for the most votes ever cast for President in the history of our state.

Considering this was a Presidential General Election conducted during a pandemic, one week after a major ice storm, with a record level of voter participation, it went fairly smoothly. I am very proud of our county election officials, poll workers, and State Election Board staff for their perseverance, professionalism, and dedication to free and fair elections.
