Long Lines Don’t Deter Excited Voters

For many of us this is the first time we’re able to vote in a presidential election. Earlier today I stood outside of the Childrens Home in Poughkeepsie to ask voters how they felt about the election. For many of the people I spoke to it was their first time voting. For these voters they expressed excitement in being able to take part in something so historical. Although many expressed confusion after going in the voting booth, all were very glad to do have done it. In Orangeburg, South Carolina, Jude Elliot waited on line for an hour and a half before getting to cast his ballot. He expressed excitement in the fact that so many people came out to vote. “It feels great to be an American today. The best hour and a half of my life,” said Elliot. Voters I spoke to were lucky enough to vote quickly as there were no lines. However, the fact remains that voters have a lot of invested interest in this year’s election. It’s going to be exciting to see how this all plays out.
