Voters ready for election, moving on

Posted by Cody Holyoke - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Election Day buzz is in full effect as voters prepare to head to the polls and imagine life after the election.

"It's been a little heated.  I'll be glad when tomorrow gets here, because it'll be over with," said Carol Messick of Pintlala.

Monday, teams across the state wheeled election equipment into polling places--unloading tables, dividers, and ballots.

"It can get complicated.  The last place we were was a school and it had six different ballot styles," said Susie Wiemer with Election Systems & Software, the company that owns the equipment in use in Montgomery County.

Residents are hopeful people will come out and vote.

"Regardless of how you feel about Democrats or Republicans, it's your duty to vote," said Harvey Monroe, a steward at St. Paul AME Church in Montgomery.

Some voters say they're ready to report for that duty, using the experience as an example for their kids.

"I bring my boys to school later on that particular day, because they accompany me to the polls. I want them to see 'Daddy' going in there and making my voice be heard for their future," said Thaddeus Porter of Montgomery.
