The Board of Elections says the number of ballots cast so far may exceed turnout for the 2006 midterm election.

And unlike previous election years, new scanner machines are reducing wait times.

They say even citizens who haven't voted in years, are taking time to cast ballots.

Many say their sentiment about our country's leadership is divided.

"I'm happy with this country, said Gloria Bailey. " And that's why I'm lucky that I can come out and vote."

"I'm not happy with the direction our country's going," said William Whitesell. " I feel like a lot of our rights are being limited right now. There's been larger government taking over things that they've never involved themselves in before."

The polls will be open until 7 p.m. tonight.

The Board of Elections says anyone who's in line to vote at 7 p.m., will get to vote!
