Election Board: more primary votes than '14 General or '16 Presidential Primary


Statement from Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax regarding turnout in the June 26 Primary Election:

"As the state’s chief election official, I am proud of Oklahoma voters for turning out in large numbers for yesterday’s Primary Election. More people voted yesterday than in the 2014 General Election or the 2016 Presidential Primary. We hope this level of voter engagement continues in the Runoff Primary on August 28 and the General Election on November 6."
