Record vote unclear in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahomans turned out in large numbers Tuesday for the presidential election, but officials won't known until later if a record was set.

The record vote in a presidential election was 1,463,758 in 2004.

"We're going to come really close to having about the same number again," said state Election Board Secretary Mike Clingman.

Clingman said officials had counted 1,460,271 votes late Tuesday, with about 1,800 ballots believed to be still out.

He said a few hundreds provisional ballots also are still to be counted and the final turnout numbers will not be known until Friday.
