Early Voting in New Carrollton
Winsome Brissett, 48, came to the polls with her 11-year-old son, Ajani. The lab technician from New Carrollton, said she wanted to bring her son because "it is a historical moment. I wanted my son to be here because he loves Obama."
Rosemarie Sanford, 45, came to the polls with her 8-year-old twins, Gabrielle and Gillian. Sanford said coming to the polls together is a family tradition. "I have always brought them to the polls since they were babies. They understand the political process."
There were nearly 200 people in the line at the Charles Carroll Middle School by the time the polling place there opened at 7 a.m. No one was complaining about the waits of at least an hour before reaching the touch screen voting machines.
Michele Mackall, 50, said that she didn't mind waiting in line early on Election Day. "I need a change. I am tired of the struggle. The last eight years have been hard, I just wanted to make sure that I voted early."
