    Thousands of Massachusetts voters took advantage of early voting to cast their ballots for the presidential election; republican Governor Charlie Baker was not one of them.

    Baker refused to vote for either candidate in the election.

    “I said many months ago that I wasn’t going to support Donald Trump for a number of reasons,” Baker said. “And I thought Hillary Clinton had a number of believability problems. And nothing has happened in the past nine months to change my mind on that.”

    Baker knows he is not alone in this regard and hopes Americans remain united during this divisive election.

    “Whatever happens today, it’s going to be really important for people to send signals and do things that support the notion that we are still all in this together,” Baker reminded voters.

    United States Senator Elizabeth Warren on the other hand was eager to vote this morning. Warren says she is nervous about the outcome but more importantly she is ready for it to be over.

    Warren has been a Hillary Clinton supporter and at one time was rumored to be her running mate. She has also clashed with Donald Trump multiple times.

    Warren says she truly believes in Clinton’s message of “Stronger Together.”

    She is confident that on election today we will show the world that the United States is a country that, “believes in opportunity for everyone. That we’re not a country that calls each other names.”
