All of Tulsa Transit's daytime fixed routes will be free all day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in an effort to make it easier for Tulsans to vote early at ONEOK Field in Tuesday's presidential election.

The move was financially supported by the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa.

"We know that there are reasons that people don't make it to the polls, and we wanted to remove that barrier here," said Lynn Staggs, LWVMT President. "An obvious thing that we came up with was transportation, so anybody who has that in their way, we hope to remove that barrier."

Tulsa Transit General Manager Ted Rieck said the League would be contributing about $3,000, representing about half of expected revenue lost during the three days.

ONEOK Field, the Tulsa Drillers' baseball stadium, is Tulsa County's only early voting location this year. Registered voters can cast early ballots on Thursday and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

More information is available at the Tulsa County Election Board's website.
