It's no secret thousands of Tulsa voters failed to make it to the polls. The Tulsa County Election Board has stacks of returned voter notices, sent to voters, who have missed two federal elections. Now workers are trying to contact those voters by November, when candidates will need them.

In Tulsa's primary mayoral race, only 29 percent of voters showed up to vote at aall. KathyTaylor, the former mayor took in 42-percent of the votes. In the city of Tulsa, where 41 percent of all voters. just happen to be democrats.

Current mayor, Dewey Bartlett received 34 percent and Bill Christiansen,  the former city councilor took 23 percent. Together, their votes rounded up to nearly the exact percentage of republican and independent of voters.

There are thousands of undecided voters and five months more of campaigning--before the general election in November.

Analysts agree, it could be a close race.

You may need to register to vote for the November election, if so you can pick up a form the election board, and return it by October 18th.

Bill Christiansen had 23-percent of the votes, enough to be a game changer. He says will meet with both candidates and decide who he will support.
