OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says heavy voter turnout is being reported statewide and voters are reporting waits of an hour to an hour-and-a-half to cast their ballots.

Polls are open until at 7 p.m. Tuesday for the general election and Ziriax says long lines were being reported at precincts statewide as voters waited to cast their ballots.

Ziriax said no technical problems have been reported.

He said the turnout is "on track" to be the largest since the last presidential election in 2008 when about 67 percent of voters cast ballots. The state has just more than 2.1 million registered voters.

Voters are also deciding congressional races in each of the state's five congressional districts, numerous state House and Senate races and six state questions.
