'Solid' Voter Turnout Reported

Voting today appears to be "solid" across the state, volunteers for several campaigns reported at midday.

In Tulsa, one of the state's key electoral battlegrounds, voting was said to be brisk, with poll-opening lines in some precincts.

In Oklahoma City, some precincts had lines before 7 a.m. One precinct worker said turnout had been "very good so far."

An Edmond poll worker said turnout there "has been huge all morning." He attributes the voting pace to the 5th District congressional race and the presence of Edmond resident James Lankford on the ballot.

A Moore voter said she voted at mid-morning and was told turnout there has been good.

In Midwest City in early afternoon, one precinct had recorded votes on par with previous gubernatorial election years.
