NORMAN — Overall voter turnout for the primary this past week remained a pathetic 21 percent of all those eligible.
However, one bright spot: Voters took advantage of a first-time, satellite, in-person absentee voting booth in south Oklahoma City.
Cleveland County Election Board officials said of the 1,080 total early voters, 299 of them came to Moore Norman Technology Center’s south Penn campus. That’s pretty good for a first-time polling place.
Cleveland County and Tulsa County were selected to try out the satellite voting locations. They’ll do it again in the runoff and General Election.
County officials expect early voting there to grow as more north Cleveland County residents learn of the site. It’s a good partnership with the technology center.
