The Tulsa County Election Board is seeing record numbers for early in-person voting. Early voting started last Friday and wraps up Monday afternoon.

News on 6 reporter Omar Villafranca was at the Tulsa County Election Board Monday morning. As of 9:30 AM Monday, more than 6,300 people had gone to the polls. Friday was the biggest day for early voting, with more than 3,700 people lining up.

If you want to make your voting experience smoother, election officials have some advice, they say bring an ID. Sherry Boggs with the Tulsa County Election Board: "It's always a good idea to have your voter identification card with you. Most of the time it's not needed. But if we in the election system have made any errors whatsoever, it will help us in finding the voters name in the precinct registry."

There's been plenty of pre-election buzz about voter intimidation and discrimination. The Tulsa County Election Board says if you have a complaint, you can call the Registration office at 596-5787
