Hawaii voters want the right man for the job
With only a few hours left before the polling sites close on
the island of Oahu, Hawaii, eager voters pull into Kalani High school's parking
lot, ready to make the decision of who they want to be President for the next
four years. As some voters make their way into the building, others file out
relieved to be done with the election.
When Debbie Kuwamoto was asked if she was relieved that the election was over she happily exclaimed, "Yes!" The same response came from many other people who had just finished voting. With Hurricane Sandy just recently hitting New York, extra pressure was put on the voters, and many people were ready for the whole process to be over.
People also said that they were "anxious for a change in the presidential office." When Carole Losner was asked what type of change she was looking for, she answered, "I want a President who can improve the economy and provide more jobs." A few others said that they were hoping that small businesses, security, and healthcare would also be improved by the elected president.
Many people said that they thought the election would be a close call, but they were glad that we had two candidates who are willing to serve our country for the next four years. As Election Night comes to a close, Carole Losner says, "I just hope the right man gets the job."
