I voted this morning, and despite being given the wrong party's ballot initially, I finally did cast the vote I intended to.

I voted today. There were around ten of us in at a little after 8:00. The line moved quickly and I cast my vote in under one minute.

I did vote in the primary however I did not vote for the person who I believe would be the best candidate for the Office of the Presidency. I voted for the person whom I believe will have the best chance in beating the Democratic candidate. Increase taxes and social programs will not help this country, lower taxes, less government and a secure boarder is what we need.
I was surprise and glad to see such a large turn out so far in my area, we usually do not have any numbers to say of, so this is great for us all.

I voted this morning. Went very quickly seeing as I was the only one in there, but that was at 7:15am. Kinda disappointed I didn't see more people. I think this years race is the most fun to follow since I've been able to vote.(I'm only 33)

I voted this morning as well, I have no idea what makes it so exciting but I always am to cast my vote. I was the only one in there voting and was a little let down but maybe once the day goes on there will be more.

Tried to vote in Holland before driving to GR. Had to go to 3 different polling places looking because they moved mine (no one was there) and I had no idea. Others were driving around looking also. Finally found the right one 1/2 hour later....made me late for work. Should have put a sign up or something.

I voted a little after 7:30 this morning and was number 16. Two other people were voting at the same time I was. Hopefully things will pick up; it really bothers me when people don't even bother to vote. I think there were a lot of absentee voters. Also I'm wondering how many Democrats won't be voting today (feeling like their vote doesn't count).

I voted this morning before coming to work. It was busy, for rural Oceana County, but no problems. In regards to who I voted for; my wife and I boiled it down to this question; What is most importatnt in the next 4 years? Foriegn relations? Economy? Moral and Ethical direction?

Absolutely I voted. I vote in every election. I was thinking this morning that one of the best ways to "Support the Troops" is to VOTE. What are they fighting for, if not for our right to democratically elect our leaders? On another note, the Democratic Party has absolutely NO RIGHT to invalidate my vote. The rules are arcane. ALL CAUCUSES AND PRIMARIES SHOULD BE HELD ON THE SAME DAY, AND THE MEDIA SHOULD BE FEDERALLY DISALLOWED FROM REPORTING THE RESULTS UNTIL THE POLLS CLOSE ON THE WEST COAST. I am a citizen of the United States, and if the DNP insists upon holding firm on their current threat to disallow our delegates to be seated at the convention, I will loudly voice my disapproval and possibly LEAVE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. ALL VOICES SHOULD BE HEARD AND COUNTED. PERIOD.

Sick and tired of all the press on Mcain and Romin N\oodles and not anthing on Huckabee.
Why is it so difficult to be fair to everybody?
Seems to me that WZZM 13 has a very biased veiw and your supposed to be all about the "People Make the Difference"? well we're the people and we don't like it.
