TULSA, Okla. — Local law enforcement is working to ensure people headed to ONEOK for early voting are safe.
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office will have about a dozen deputies inside at all times through Saturday.
Deputies say they are keeping an eye on the ballot boxes and also have a presence near the line to make sure everything runs smoothly.
They are also making sure no one is campaigning.
While they are on the inside, The Tulsa Police Department has security on the majority of the outside. Police are blocking nearby streets and are responsible for anything that happens beyond that.
For those going to polling places on Tuesday, some precincts will have off duty deputies there. Gwen Freeman with the Tulsa County Election Board said they try and provide security for precincts that ask for it.
