Iowans ready for the election to be over
All across the nation today, people over the age of 18 voted
for the next President. Many people in Iowa voted at local centers and
elementary schools. Everyone had different opinions on this years’ election
along with different thoughts throughout the whole election year.
People throughout America had their own thoughts about the tone of this year’s election. Calvin Myles said the tone of the election was more hostile then year’s before. Military Officer Lopez told Scholastic News, “This year there was a lot more bickering then past years. They seemed to dig at each other.”
A lot of voters felt the same way about the tone of the election and hope the 2016 election will be a cleaner fight. Kristen Posey agreed with this statement. “This year wasn’t a good political environment and I’m ready for it to be over,” she told Scholastic.
Along with how people thought of the tone of the election, they also had many different thoughts throughout the campaign about who they supported. James Carly claims he had different opinions throughout this year. He said he would go back and forth with the candidate he wanted, like many other people have done this year. Also many people were frustrated with how much the candidates fought this year. Calvin Myles told Scholastic, “The candidates really needed to work together more instead of fighting the whole time. That would have made it less hostile.”
Along with the excitement of being able to finally vote, many of the voters are excited for the election to be over. “I’m ready for the ads and campaigns to be over,” said Dorothy Clauss. “There have been played a lot that can get on your nerves.”
With the Presidential election coming to a close, people all across the nation are waiting to see who will be the next President. They are waiting to see who can help change America.
