The polls open again in just hours. Thousands are expected to line up at their precincts to cast their ballot for president, and many more races and issues. Early voting ended at six this evening, but polling staffers are preparing for their big day, which starts Tuesday at 7 a.m.

Monday voters invaded polls with their opinion one box at a time. People were passionate enough enduring a wait that lasting half an hour or more.

"If you're not registered, more than likely, it’s not going to count,” said Assistant Secretary of the Tulsa County Election Board, Shelly Boggs.

Boggs has been hands on from the, and now, she admits her hands are full.

"I think its going to be close, we did set a record four years ago," said Boggs.

In all, there are 262 precincts in Tulsa County. The crowd is expected to dip a bit this year. In 2008, Tulsa County had 360,000 voters registered. This year, 347,000 people are registered in Tulsa County.

"We’re averaging today, 485 voters per hour," said Boggs.

To vote, you must show up with some form of state or federal identification with a photo, per the 2011 Voter ID Law. If you don't have it, you'll have to present a voter registration card.
