Oklahoma voters take part in Super Tuesday

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.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. If you aren't sure where your polling place is, the Oklahoma Election Board has an online voter tool to help you out. Make sure to bring a valid ID when you vote.

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:
Hillary Clinton
Bernie Sanders
Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente
Keith Judd
Martin J. O'Malley
Michael A. Steinberg
Star Locke

Republican voters will get to decide between the following candidates:
Marco Rubio
Ben Carson
Chris Christie
Rick Santorum
Mike Huckabee
Carly Fiorina
Jeb Bush
John R. Kasich
Donald J. Trump
Rand Paul
Lindsey Graham
Ted Cruz

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.
