Oklahoma election officials say nearly 12 percent of the state's 2.1 million registered voters cast ballots early this year, either by mail or in-person, easily surpassing the previous record.

As of early Tuesday evening, Oklahoma Election Board spokesman Bryan Dean says more than 256,775 ballots were cast early this year, shattering the old record of about 188,000 in 2008.

Dean says about 103,000 absentee ballots had been received in the mail by 5:15 p.m. on Tuesday, less than two hours before the 7 p.m. deadline. That bests the previous mark of 74,000 mailed absentee ballots in 2008.

Also, Dean says about 153,354 voters cast ballots during three days of early in-person voting last week, significantly more than the 114,000 in 2008.
