LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Super Tuesday is only a few hours away, and the lines to cast a ballot are expected to be long in Oklahoma.
The Presidential Preferential Primary is one of the busiest voting days in Oklahoma. If you weren't one of the thousands of Oklahomans who took advantage of early voting opportunities, be prepared for long lines.
Oklahoma is one of 12 states holding primary elections Tuesday, March 1. Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia are all participating. Colorado and Minnesota are taking part with caucuses.
This is the first year the Democratic Party is allowing Independent voters to take part in the Democratic Primary.
Democratic and Independent voters will get to decide between the following candidates:
Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente
Martin J. O'Malley
Michael A. Steinberg
Republican voters will get to decide between the following candidates:
John R. Kasich
Donald J. Trump
Even though Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum have dropped out of the race, they are still on the ballot and votes will count toward them. Those votes are then split among party delegates in correspondence to congressional districts. Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump currently lead the two parties, but it's still anyone's game.
We'll have the results as they come in Tuesday night on kswo.com.
