In Woodbridge: 'We should be turned around by now."
The voters in the Lake Ridge area want change, they said, many coming out to support Keith Fimian. Election officials said they have seen a steady flow in voters with 795 people -- about 27 percent of those registered -- through the doors by 2 p.m.
"This year we need a change in Congress," Woodbridge resident Rudy Mallari, 54, said, noting he supported Gerry Connolly in the last election. "Because of the economy, we have lost a lot of jobs. I think (Fimian) can help rebuild the economy. "
Woodbridge resident Mary Hale, 63, also said she wants to see change and would be fine if the shakeup predicted on Election Night becomes a reality.
"I want to see more of a balance in Congress," she said. " I also want to see more interaction between the two parties. "
Hale said health care is the biggest issue for her. "We have a good health-care system, it just needs to be more accessible," she said. "I'm not sure, however, how it will be financed. "
Woodbridge resident Jennifer Bridges , 53, said she is a longtime supporter of the Republican party and hopes Fimian can help turn the economy around.
"I'm tired of everything moving so slow; we should be turned around by now," she said.
