A Sense of History for First-Time Voters
In Charles County, Latia Downing, 21, and her mother, Felitia Buckner, 42, both of Waldorf, said they were excited to be participating in this year's election.
"This is my first time. This is the first black president," said Downing, as her mother laughed and pointed out that her daughter already had Sen. Barrack Obama winning.
"Even if he doesn't win," Downing said, "this is history. I'm excited."
Also voting in her first election, Blossom Brown, 18, of Waldorf, said she did not agree with Sen. John S. McCain's tax cuts, adding that the Republican candidate "didn't seem like my kind of guy."
