Nearly 51,000 Oklahomans cast early votes or sent in absentee ballots for the presidential primaries.
In Tulsa County, more than 8,500 people voted early. That includes 4,937 people who came out for early, in-person voting Thursday through Saturday at the election board offices or Hardesty Library.
"We wound up with numbers just barely below what we did in 2016 during that presidential primary, and if you consider it, we had an open seat at that point. So, the numbers are very, very good," said Tulsa County Election Board Secretary Gwen Freeman.
