OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Candidates across Oklahoma plan a final push to turn out supporters as voters prepare to head to the polls on Tuesday.

Both of Oklahoma’s U.S. Senate seats are on the ballot this year, along with four U.S. House seats, the governor’s race and several statewide and local contests.

Governor Mary Fallin is planning to attend a get-out-the-vote rally at noon Tuesday in Tulsa with fellow Republicans U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe and Congressman James Lankford.

Fallin’s Democratic opponent Representative Joe Dorman also planned an Election Day rally in Tulsa.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, and voters might want to bring an umbrella. The National Weather Service says rain chances are high throughout the day across most of the state.
