OKLAHOMA CITY – Thousands of Oklahomans spent more than an hour in line to have their voice heard in the presidential election.
According to the Oklahoma State Election Board, early voting this year was record-breaking with 234,500 voters casting their ballots by mail or 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 it seems like the election is all anyone is talking about, these were not the candidates Oklahomans chose.
In March, Oklahoma voters chose to support Ted Cruz over the now Republican nominee Donald Trump. Cruz won Oklahoma with 34 percent of the Republican vote, over Trump’s 28 percent.
In the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton with 52 percent compared to Clinton’s 42 percent.
In the national race, Trump and Clinton clinched their parties’ nominations.
During Tuesday’s election, Oklahomans chose to support Trump over Clinton.
With 1,891 precincts reporting, more than 65% of voters cast their ballot for Trump, compared to 28.6% for Clinton and 5.7% for Johnson.
