TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa County Election Board says there is a dire need for precinct officials for the upcoming June 30 primary election.
The average age of the people who work the polls in Tulsa County is 75, which means many poll workers are at high risk for the coronavirus.
Long-time officials say it's time for the younger generations to step up and help them out.
The state election board says the shortage is statewide.
They need a minimum of three people per precinct, and there are 1,938 precincts in Oklahoma.
