OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - For a primary in a presidential election year, the number of people voting Tuesday in Oklahoma was the lowest since 1952.
Only 328,974 voted in the primary, about 18 percent of the 1.8 million Republicans and Democrats eligible to vote.
State Election Board Secretary Mike Clingman says you have to go all the way back to 1944 to have such a low vote in a presidential year when there was a U.S. Senate primary. In 1952, a Corporation Commission race topped the ticket.
Clingman said he had not determined if the percentage turnout was a record low.
