TULSA - Early voting began Thursday morning in Tulsa, and the Tulsa County Election Board says people have turned out in record numbers. 

“We had 400  people an hour four years ago, so we’re at 465 at just this location and 300 at the other location, so we’re almost double," said Tulsa County Election Board Secretary Patty Bryant. 

Early voting is Thursday through Friday 8 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 2 p.m. You vote either at the Tulsa County Election Board or Hardesty Library. 

“I’m a full-time student so it’s kind of hard with my schedule to get there. Plus, I want to try and get in early, avoid the long lines on election day, said voter David Repicky. 

The board suggests reading the state questions ahead of time so voting doesn't take as long. 

There's also a separate entrance for people with disabilities, so they can sit and get assistance if needed.
