When to vote
Jeanne Leopard and her husband, Leo Hines, said they voted for the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, on Saturday.
In 2008, Leopard voted for Obama and Hines for McCain. Leopard, who works for the state, said she was disappointed in Obama's first term.
“A lot of what he proposed at the time — the hope and the change — has not come to fruition,” Leopard said. “I agree you have to spend, but his approach was not a sound approach and we need another avenue.”
Hines, an electronics manufacturer, said he was surprised at the number of undecided voters in line.
“There weren't any heated discussions but there was a sense of uncertainty about which way they were going to vote,” he said.
A worker for the Oklahoma State Election Board said Saturday early voting went smoothly statewide.
