OKLAHOMA – State election board officials said early voting totals are record-breaking.

However, many Oklahomans haven't voted, and some are still unsure who to vote for.

"I have a good idea. Lesser of two evils, I guess,” one Oklahoman told NewsChannel 4.

That’s an opinion a lot of Oklahomans share.

"It's been a lot of back and forth, a lot of research, watching the debates, reading up on issues and understanding both sides of the democrats and republicans,” another Oklahoman told NewsChannel 4.

"I probably won't go with either majority," said one women.

"I haven't voted yet, but I'm really not sure who I'd vote for,” said another Oklahoman.

However, others have already made their decision.

According to the Oklahoma state election board, early voting this year was record-smashing.

It broke the 2008 record of 114.3K with 234.5K combined mail/early voting.

"It as crazy. We went on Friday morning and, up there at the Baptist church, it was like wrapped around the building,” said one man.

While some chose to wait until Tuesday instead of battling the crowds, Oklahomans agree it’s their duty to get out and vote.

"I think everyone is pretty concerned and want to make a change and want to make a correct decision and everyone is passionate about the choices we have to make,” said an Oklahoman.

"If we don't vote, we don't have a reason to gripe about it,” said one woman.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
