Early voting started Thursday, and we’re tracking the number of early votes in the five Oklahoma counties with the most registered voters.

We’re comparing this year’s early-voter turnout with the numbers who turned out early in the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Early voting lasts three days — Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We’ll update this page daily with this year’s latest early voter numbers. The early voting numbers are considered preliminary until after the election is over, as there might be voter credits that don’t immediately show up in early reporting.

See updated early voting numbers and how they compared to previous elections in the tables below.

On Friday, Oklahoma saw 112,934 early voters. That’s already more early votes than were cast in the 2012 election.

Tulsa County and Oklahoma County have had more early voters than the 2008 and 2012 election.

On Thursday, 53,787 Oklahomans voted early, according to preliminary numbers from the Oklahoma State Election Board. The state saw 112,718 early voters in the 2012 election.

Tulsa County saw 6,234 early voters Thursday, more than half of the number of early voters it saw during the 2012 election at 9,108.
