Early voting begins Thursday in the run-off election that will help determine several party's candidates for state and federal offices.

You can start early voting at 8 a.m., but, in most counties, you can only vote at your county election board. Sometimes there's a second site - in Tulsa County, you can vote at the downtown Election Board or at Hardesty Library near the Creek and Memorial.

"I think it's wonderful," said voter Shelia Johnson. "It gets everybody. There should be no excuses not to vote - I think it's wonderful."

There are several state races for Oklahomans to decide. If you're a registered Republican, you can vote for the final two in the governor's race, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and more. Democrats and Independents can vote in a runoff for corporation commissioner.

On the federal side, Republicans are deciding between Kevin Hern or Tim Harris for Congressional District 1, and, if you’re a Democrat, Tim Gilpin or Amanda Douglas.

Libertarians have a runoff for governor as well.

There are also several local races. In Tulsa, almost every city council district is contested.

Polls close at 6 p.m.
