TULSA, OK -- Oklahomans lined up across the state to cast their ballot on Saturday.

In Tulsa, the line was even longer than Friday. The lines went past the Election Board parking lot and around the block.

Many told The News On 6 they've never waited in a line this long to vote before.

No matter who wins, we'll either have our first black President or our first female Vice President.

Tulsans say it's worth the wait it to be a part of history.

"It's exciting for my fist time. You know every vote counts, so hopefully my vote will make a change," said Jennifer Mack.

"We wanna make this world a better place. So we're coming out and gettin' up early and getting out here to vote," said Phyllis Settle.

"It's exciting to see people care about what's happening with their country," said Jeff Buckley.

Many voters say they were also willing to brave Saturday's line because they believe lines will be even longer on Tuesday.

Across the nation, experts are predicting the highest voter turnout in decades.

You can still beat the crowds. While County Election Boards are closed Sunday, early voting continues Monday. Election boards will open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Then Tuesday, the only place to cast a ballot is at your local polling place.
