• Voter voices: "I want to be a part of the solution"

    I voted early

    Vance, Paula, and Cassius are some of the many supporters who have already been to the polls. Find out why they voted early, then make a plan to cast your ballot.

    "I voted today. President Obama has been my president, he is my president, and he will be my president. High five to four more! Thanks to the economic policies of the Democratic Party that support hard-working Americans, my brother and I went from living in a trailer park in rural North Carolina to graduating from Yale University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. That is the hope, the change, and the future President Clinton provided and the torch President Obama carries without any complaint and with full compassion for Americans yearning to breathe free."
    —Vance, North Carolina

    "My husband and I have already voted for President Obama. In these very troublesome and precarious times, he is an instrument for change and progress. We believe that this country will reward him for his mission. I thank him for his service, and I hope my children will one day understand the greatness of his accomplishment."
    —Paula, Colorado

    "President Obama has done great things—like health care reform, which will make sure our grandchildren can’t be denied insurance. Or like making sure that your daughter will have the same rights as my son. In eight years he’d be able to balance a lot of things. I voted early because I want to be part of the solution. If you don’t vote, there’s no hope."
    —Cassius, Nevada
