I’m out here at the first English Lutheran Church in Peoria. Voters are getting in here last minute to cast that ballot.
It’s very busy, it resembles something like a voting frenzy here. I talked with a few people in East Peoria earlier today, and they told me, they are just doing their part.
“We need somebody who’s going to stand up for this country, we don’t need somebody who’s going to make fun of people and harass them and put them down. We need someone who’s going to stand up for everybody,” says Steve Holford.
“A lot of young kids need to vote and by not voting we really impact the world in a negative way, I would like to say. And by voting we start to give back that positive impact,” remarked college student, Kirsten Gage.
About ten people voted every five minutes or so as the election excitement continued through the evening.
