MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Voters have a lot to consider over the next 24 hours. With the statewide primary Tuesday, voters will head to the polls to narrow down their choices for a new governor, but that isn't the only race that's important to voters.

85-year-old Lionel Young says he is ready to vote. 

"Let’s get on with it. I am interested in finding out who will be the candidates for the November election," said Young. 

The approach he takes for choosing a candidate is simple. 

"Let’s vote for who we feel to be the best candidate regardless of the party,” said Young. 

Alabama's 2nd Congressional District is the race David Earnest is watching closely. 

"I think we need to do some clean up in Washington. They need to do more of what they promised and less of what they are doing,” said David Earnest. 

With a child headed to the 2nd grade, Alicia Calloway's biggest concern is the current state of Montgomery Public Schools. Her attention is on the School Board races. 

"I am looking for someone that has the answers to a lot of the problem. And I am planning on voting for someone who will help the children,” said Calloway. 

While some voters aren't focused on a particular race, residents like Kitty Harrell want a change. 

"I just like forward thinking people who are not hung up on old south, outdated ideas,” said Harrell.  

One thing these voters are already tired of is the negative campaign ads. Many of them would prefer the candidates just stick to the issues.
