1.3 million Oklahomans cast ballots in election


From The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Election Board reports that 1.15 million of Oklahoma’s 2.1 million registered voters cast ballots on Election Day.

Including absentee voting by mail and early voting there were a total of 1.3 million votes cast for a turnout of about 62 percent.

Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says the most votes were cast Tuesday in the presidential race. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney carried Oklahoma with 66.8 percent of the vote — although President Barack Obama was re-elected to a second term.

Ziriax says there were a few instances of election boards recounting their votes that delayed the count but nothing that affected the final totals.

County election boards will certify their results Friday and the state Election Board meets next Tuesday for final certification.
