Long Lines Meet Early Voters on Day Before National Election

Posted: Updated:

Early in-person absentee voting has drawn quite a crowd in downtown Tulsa as some residents looked to put this election season behind them.

Early voting continues Monday as potential voters head to their county election boards to cast their votes for the country's next president, a few state questions and other decisions that need their seal of approval or disapproval.

Voters wanting to cast their ballots last Friday were greeted with a long line at the county's election board on Denver Ave.

Dozens of constituents waited for the doors to open at 8:00am.

Tulsa's Channel 8 Kim Jackson was the Tulsa County Election Board Friday and found some voters a little confused about the process.

Voters found out, the line was not as challenging as the ballot itself.

"You have to fill in all those boxes and it was two sided, and there were a lot of questions and all these justices that want to be retained or not retained," explained Kristen Bartholomew. She and her husband Lee are leaving for vacation so they had to vote today.

The Women's League of Voters develops voter guides full of information on candidates and questions.

But no matter how much you study, the wording may be confusing.

But whether you are fully informed or not, you still have time to read up on everything that's on the ballot and cast your early vote today from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Voters who want to vote early must do so at the main county election board in the county they are registered to cast a ballot.
