Thousands of Tulsans took to the polls on Monday to vote absentee. The Tulsa County Election Board said as many as a hundred people an hour voted.

Voting ended on Monday at 6:00 p.m. and now workers are preparing for the primary on Tuesday. They're checking election supplies, such as ballots and forms, and handing them out to precinct inspectors. They're preparing for a big turnout.

"We certainly hope we're gonna break some records tomorrow. And as far as the interest in this election, as well as the number of people who've registered to vote or made changes during the month of January, we may very well get that," said Shelly Boggs with the Tulsa County Election Board.

Independents are not allowed to vote in Tuesday's primary. They'll have to wait until the general election to make their pick for president. But, some precincts have school issues on the ballots. Independents will be able to vote on those issues.
