Voters talk about OK State Questions while waiting to vote

LAWTON, Okla_There was a long line at the Comanche County Courthouse, as voters came out early to cast their ballots. Friday's line was even longer, it snaked out of the election board office, into the hallway and outside the building. Voting has been heavy in Stephens County as well as Jackson County.

The state has just over 2 million registered voters. If you didn't get a chance to show up for early voting. You still can cast your ballot Tuesday in the general election.

There are also six state questions, and their topics range from a ban on affirmative action to a change in taxes.  Each question is numbered, but the wording on the ballot can be a little confusing, so we wanted to know what voters out voting were doing to help them clear things up.

One voter said he and his wife have reviewed them all. He even pulled a list from his pocket and showed which ones will get a yes or no from them.

"We know what we want to vote and wrote it all down, so we would know what we were going to do when we came, we're ready."

Another voter said he'd taken a good look at the list before he came to vote, but some of the topics left him shaking his head.

"They have some of them on there good and some of them I think that don't even make any sense."

Another voter said he's still undecided on the majority of questions, but know two will definitely have his support.

"They're both favorable to education and both things that we think needs to be done."

Monday was the last day of early voting at the courthouse. Tuesday, you'll have to go to your local precinct between 7 a.m. and 7p.m.

If you do not know where you're polling precinct is located, go to www.ok.gov/elections. At the bottom of the page click on "polling place locator."
