Friday is the last day to register for the presidential primaries in Oklahoma.

With Super Tuesday on February 5, Oklahoma voters are expected to turn out in big numbers at the polls.

"We usually have one or the other [political party] have a fairly competitive primary," said Mike Clingman from the Oklahoma State Election Board. "This time both sides get to come at it and really make a difference."

NEWS 9 political analyst Scott Mitchell agrees and said any of the candidate could become the next president of the United States.

"As competitive as it is this year, every delegate counts," said Mitchell. "I mean this is literally like 2000. The delegate race could be down to the last few [candidates]. Every vote counts in this particular deal."
