The Oklahoma State Election Board said Oklahomans set a new record for voter turnout in the 2020 election. 

According to state officials, it is the highest voter turnout Oklahoma has seen in 20 years, with nearly 1.6 million votes cast.

According to the State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax, there were signs well before election day that Oklahoma would see a record turnout.

"Well we knew it was going to be big this year because we have seen a surge in voter registrations we've had record mail absentee voting. We saw a record early voting,” said Ziriax.

In Tulsa County, all precincts have reported their results, however they will not be certified until the end of the week and the state will certify the results by Tuesday, November 11.
