The Oklahoma Senate approved a bill to extend early voting by a day.

Senate Majority Leader Kim David says Oklahoma ranks last for voter turnout when looking at the eligible population.

Oklahoma also has the shortest in-person voting period in the country.

Lawmakers hope that by extending early voting more people will vote.
