Here are a few more photos from Election Day in Western Roanoke County. Folks turned out to vote at the Catawba Recreation Center and Mountain Pass Baptist Church.
Voters at Catawba Recreation Center had a lot to say about their decisions today.
- Danielle Stump says she went with Romney “because of his stance on abortions.” Her cousin, Eric Euler, also voted Romney for, he says, “too many reasons.”
- Nick Crum voted for Romney “because he supports the main things I believe in, so gun rights and etc.”
- Phil Beland noted that his vote supports Romney, Allen and Griffin.
- Wayne and Judy Gauldin sided with Romney and the Republicans too. “I pretty much voted Republican all the way,” Wayne said. “Not necessarily because I’m Republican–I’m pretty much an Independent–but I just agree with them.”
- Tricia Richardson says she voted for Romney, “just because.”
Folks at Mountain Pass Baptist Church were in on the conversation too.
- Andrew Ashby says he went with Romney. “I don’t think we can afford four more years. I think we’re spending too much money, and I don’t like our standing in the world. I don’t feel safer than I did four years ago.”
- Helen Dean stuck with Obama. “I think he’s very committed to making things right. His focus is on community as well as jobs and foreign affairs.”
- Edith Goff says she “voted Republican all the way! I just hope and pray we’ve done the right thing. The next four years can’t be no worse than the last four years,” she said with a laugh.
- Melissa Jones summed up her reasons for voting Romney in one word: “conservative.”
- Paul Senecal said, “I can’t do that!” when asked if he’d be willing to share who he voted for this year. “Some people will hunt me down!” he said, walking away. He stopped and turned. “But I do think it’s time for a change!”
