Confidence in voting on Election Day

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- The line at the polls on Nov. 8 were long and the wait was as long as 60 minutes. Voters said voting in person felt more genuine.

"Some of the things that come up in the past few weeks and those that have changed early voters might want to change their vote," Patricia Tornes said.

At both CMU and Goodwill people were constantly walking through the doors to vote.

"It seems like there's a lot of people in there which is good because I definitely think there is a shortage of people that are interested in politics right now," CMU student Gregory Waldorf said.

CMU student Robert Burnett voted for the first time today.

"It was my first time voting I was a little nervous at first when I walked in I was like I have no clue what I'm doing," Burnett said.

He said when he started filling out the ballot it wasn't hard.

"The nerves simmered down a little bit," Burnett said. "It was like filling in a test almost."

As students left the polling center many of them immediately put on the I voted sticker.

"It feels official now," Burnett said. "I'm happy I feel like an American citizen, not a kid."

"It is nice to see people getting involved," Waldorf said.

"I think this year is the most crucial one we have had in a very long time," Tornes said. "I don't always win, but I always vote."
