"The political arena, particularly here in Oklahoma, is pretty interesting and usually pretty fascinating," Banz said. "I think voters here are pretty diligent and will turn out to cast the right ballot to put their party forward for the general election in November."
Banz asked for an "I Voted," sticker with the American flag on it. Precinct 449 inspector Gary Lee had plenty on hand. "We appreciate you voting," Lee said, handing her a sticker.
Banz left the church in plenty of time for work with her new sticker on the left side of her blouse.
"I think voter turnout will get even bigger in November," she said.
Primary elections should be a must for voters, said Wayne Melhiser, 65, of Oklahoma City.
"People need to get out and vote in this primary because this is how some of these unsavory candidates get elected because we don't get out and support who we really want and the wrong guys get in there," Melhiser said.
