Manlius, N.Y. (Democracy in Action)- Most of the Fayeteville and Manlius residents came to Fayetteville Manlius High School to support their candidates. Many people have voted here before but this is second time coming here to vote for Manlius resident, Josh Sargrad.  He said he voted this year because he had “just the feeling of I should do it,” said Sargrad. He commented that it was easy for him to make up the decision for this year.

Lauri Pettit came to Fayetteville Manlius High School about four times to vote and this is not the first time for her to have a presidential election too. Pettit thought that this year’s election was very controversial and “It was a difficult decision,” said Pettit. She came here to vote at dinner time because she did not want to come at rush hour.

James Sharpe, poll worker, helped as a poll worker for three times but it was his first working at the presidential election polling station.”Large turn out so far,” said Sharpe. It was easy for him to make a decision to vote by absentee ballot. As a poll worker, he thinks that “turn outs have been very strong and there are number of first time voters this year,”said Sharpe.
