Oklahoma State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said Wednesday afternoon that the turnout in Tuesday’s primary election was very strong.

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