Nearly 900 volunteers are working at precincts across Tulsa County in Oklahoma's General Election. Voters are deciding the President, as well as looking at a number of local issues and races.

Many of the voters who were first in-line at precincts said they wanted to get it over with and not have to wait in long lines. One of the precincts in Tulsa County with the most registered voters is First United Methodist Church in Broken Arrow. Nearly 3,000 people are registered to vote at the precinct. Lines started forming 45 minutes before the polls opened at 7 am.

Broken Arrow resident and author of "Why we don't vote", David Harrelson said, he predicts voter turn-out will be high in Oklahoma because so many people are charged up about this election. 

Voter registration for Oklahoma's General Primary is at 347,000 in Tulsa County. Back in 2008, there were about 360,000 registered voters. Polls close at 7 pm.
