Southern Okla. AT&T service restored Tuesday night before polls close

ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - UPDATE: AT&T technicians completed repairs around 6:45 p.m. and restored service after a work crew damaged a fiber cable earlier Tuesday in the Wynnewood area. AT&T officials said they apologize to their customers for any inconvenience this may have caused.

ORIGINAL: AT&T is experiencing outages across southern Oklahoma, and it may affect how quickly voters will see election results.

AT&T officials said technicians are on site repairing a fiber cable damaged by a work crew in the Wynnewood area.

Officials with the Oklahoma State Election Board said Atoka, Coal, Marshall and Johnston counties are having network issues related to the outage.

This means, for those counties, live results on the state election board website will not be updated every three seconds like normal.

The state election board said AT&T is making progress in fixing the issue and hopes to have it resolved by 7:00 tonight when polls close.
