SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Democracy in Action) – Voters trickled through the Onondaga Free Library and the Town of Onondaga Town Hall Tuesday afternoon to vote for the person they wanted to be the next President of the United States.

 The common thread, however, no one seemed to be too sure that either candidate was the right answer; only that the opposing candidate was most definitely the wrong answer.

 “Both of them are very confusing,” said Mary-Joe Scaia a hairdresser. “(They) confused us a lot, one day I’m with him the next day I’m with her.”

 Scaia was not unlike many voters who expressed strong dislike for Donald Trump, but did not express overall believe or trust in Hillary Clinton.

 “The whole body of politics seems to be going in different directions,” Paul Brewer said. “It’s turned into a character war between the two candidates.”

 Whatever the sentiment some voters said they believed that no matter what happens Americans will overcome and move forward.

 “I probably won’t be thrilled about it of course, but it’s our job to keep going,” Kaitlin Wydevic said. “Rely on the rest of government to check and balance things.”
