Super Tuesday: Citizens skip out on the voting in Oklahoma


OKLAHOMA CITY -- Nearly 500,000 Oklahomans went to the polls for Tuesday's Republican and Democratic presidential primaries, but others either skipped or were thwarted from casting a ballot.

Abbie King, 28, did not vote because she couldn't change her registration from Cleveland County to Oklahoma County. Since Oklahoma allows citizens to register to vote at tag agencies, King plans to re-register when she renews her driver's license later this year.

"I do plan to vote [in the general election]. I'll just do that all in one run," she said.

Chase Kerby, 31, is not registered to vote. He missed the registration deadline, but plans on registering soon.

"I wasn't particular to any of the candidates. If I have to pick the lesser of two evils, I just won't pick the evil," he said.

But Kerby said that he liked Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders because of his consistency in advocating civil and social rights.

"The old man is adorable. He has that Brooklyn accent," he joked.

Another Sander's fan, Roy Stallion, 41, said his vote was moral vote.

"He's a blue cop, he's for us. He's for the people," Stallion said.

Zac Hammock, 38, did not vote in the primaries. He believes all the candidates are simply in it for personal gain.

"All the candidates are puppets of the world bank and the International Monetary Fund," Hammock said.

Hammock said he plans to vote in the general elections, doesn't want to see Republican Donald Trump to become president.
